While the majority of pundits on the web seem to be predicting that the iPad will be released in the UK on Saturday April 24th, CNET UK’s Crave gadget blog is reporting that the release date could well be Monday, April 26th. According to Crave, CNET UK has received information that a particular publisher’s app team has been told to have their app ready for the 26th. Crave seems pretty certain about it too, even urging their readers to book that day off!
Apple, of course, declined to comment on either the release date or when they would actually be releasing the release date, which is really going overboard on the secrecy!
It’s getting so close to the end of April now that I’m starting to wonder if Apple won’t just release it suddenly as a surprise without telling anyone, kind of like they do with big apps in the app store sometimes. Put it on the UK shelves and websites and see if anyone notices!
