iPad on the Way: Pre-orders begin next week, delivery in April


It's finally coming. This morning Apple announced that the iPad will be available in the U.S. on Saturday, April 3, for Wi-Fi models and in late April for Wi-Fi + 3G models. Then, in late April, the iPad will show up in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and UK stores.

Beginning a week from today, on March 12, US customers can pre-order both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G models from Apple's online store (www.apple.com) or reserve a Wi-Fi model to pick up on Saturday, April 3, at an Apple retail store.

"iPad is something completely new," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "We're excited for customers to get their hands on this magical and revolutionary product and connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before."
