The new iPad to arrive in 30 more countries Friday and Saturday, Brazil and Saudi Arabia among them
May 11 and 12 will see the availability of Apple's latest and greatest tablet, the new iPad, in 30 more countries around the world, the company listed. Foxconn's Brazilian plant saw an approval to assemble the device not long ago, went through protests over working conditions, and now the country will have an official launch this Friday. 

Brazil commands the highest iPhone and iPad prices in the world, despite that the devices are made there, so we are curious how the new iPad will fare in Sambaland.

The other countries set for launch on May 11 are Argentina, Aruba, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, Costa Rica, CuraƧao, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Kenya, Madagascar, Malta, Martinique, Mauritius, Morocco, Peru, Taiwan, Tunisia, and Vietnam.

The weekend will see the next batch of countries receiving an official launch on May 12 - Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Apple is still trying to overcome hurdles before launching the new iPad in some crucial markets like China, where its trademark dispute with Proview looks about to be settled soon.

I Like apple products, ios is neat and all but way too expensive man!! Technology is growing everyday, a few years ago who would've thought you'd have quad core phones,by 2013-14 the most we'll be seeing hexa-core and by 2015-16 octa-core. technology is evolving blazing fast. the price is what beats me,guess i'll just stick to a single core 1ghz for now until i have some money to blow for me and my baby.
