Apple to launch iPad internationally on May 28

Already available in the US (and sold in more the 1 million units), the Apple iPad is finally coming to other countries starting May 28 – one month later than initially planned.

The countries that will get the iPad on this date are: Canada, Japan, Australia, the UK, France, Germany, Italy, Spain and Switzerland. Apparently, both the iPad WiFi and the iPad WiFi + 3G will be available on May 28.

Starting May 10, customers can pre-order the iPad in all nine countries, via Apple’s online store.

The iPad prices for Europe are as following (via Engadget Spain):

  • iPad 16GB WiFi – €479
  • iPad 32GB WiFi – €579
  • iPad 64GB WiFi – €679
  • iPad 16GB WiFi + 3G – €579
  • iPad 32GB WiFi + 3G – €679
  • iPad 64GB WiFi + 3G – €779

The iPad prices for the UK (via Apple UK):

  • iPad 16GB WiFi – £429
  • iPad 32GB WiFi – £499
  • iPad 64GB WiFi – £599
  • iPad 16GB WiFi + 3G – £529
  • iPad 32GB WiFi + 3G – £599
  • iPad 64GB WiFi + 3G – £699

As you can see, for some reason Apple decided that it’s a good idea to make all prices with at least $100 more expensive than the prices for iPad versions sold in the US.

Starting July, Apple will launch the iPad in more countries, including: Austria, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg, Ireland, Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand and Mexico.
