At the moment, the iPad is available only in few markets around the world, including the US (obviously), Canada, Australia, Japan, the UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Italy and Spain.
The App Store now hosts more than 11,000 applications especially developed for the iPad. Of course, the tablet can also run most of the 225,000 apps that are available for iPhone.
Starting July, Apple plans to introduce the iPad in nine more countries around the world. Maybe we’ll see a CDMA version for Verizon by then, too – although this will likely happen in the first quarter of the year, rather than this summer (or it might not happen at all).
