iPad 2 expected to go global this Friday
Apple has confirmed that the iPad 2 is only days away from going global, which pretty much shattered all rumors revolving around possible delays. Scheduled for launch on March 25 – just like Steve Jobs himself announced almost two weeks ago, the iPad 2 will be officially made available for purchase in another 25 countries worldwide besides the U.S. (complete list below) with Singapore, Hong Kong, and South Korea to follow them in April. Japan was also expected to get the iPad 2 this Friday, but since priorities there have shifted towards recovering from the natural disasters that struck the country, the tablet's launch has been postponed to a later date.

Apple's tablet is going to be sold through both Apple retail stores and authorized resellers such as Best Buy Canada, for example. According to Apple, prices of the different iPad 2 versions should be equivalent to their U.S. counterparts, though we suppose that slight differences in either directions are very likely to be seen in real life.

List of countries to get the iPad 2 on March 25: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K.

There you go. There aren't even enough to go around in the U.S. and they are launching worldwide. Leave it to apple to do this.

Who cares? With the news of the Galaxy Tab 10.1 at 0.33" and 1.31lbs its lighter and thinner than the iPad 2, the iPad 2 is old news. Not to forget that the GT 10.1" has a 3 megapixel rear-facing camera with autofocus and LED flash, and a 2 megapixel front-facing camera, with HD video capture at 1080p. iPad 2 is how many weeks old and its old tech already. Might as well be a tablet of paper. YAWN. How does it feel to be losing ground right at the beginning of the race? Better sit on the edge of your seat waiting for next February.

Alright... again, the comments crack me up. You are absolutely right that the technology is old, but "losing ground right at the beginning..."????

No matter what, Apple fanboys/girls/clowns will always buy whatever new Apple products come out because they are loyal. You better believe they are already waiting till next February... it's the culture...(sadly)
