    Apple has released a statement delaying the international launch of the Apple iPad until late May. Read the entire press release below:

    Although we have delivered more than 500,000 iPads during its first week, demand is far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks as more people see and touch an iPad™. We have also taken a large number of pre-orders for iPad 3G models for delivery by the end of April.

    Faced with this surprisingly strong US demand, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the international launch of iPad by one month, until the end of May. We will announce international pricing and begin taking online pre-orders on Monday, May 10. We know that many international customers waiting to buy an iPad will be disappointed by this news, but we hope they will be pleased to learn the reason—the iPad is a runaway success in the US thus far.

    I was so looking forward to getting mine at the end of April, but I'm not going to be stupid and get one on eBay for more than it's worth, I'll just have to wait :(

    yes, ignorants.....

    People still haven't understood, what iPad will do to the whole computer world.
    On one hand I'm excited, that I am actually experiencing this "(r)evolution", on the other hand, I'm scared about what Apple actually is going to do and how much influence they will get over the next years.......

    Likewise, when there was still no anouncement RE: firm release date on Monday, I ordered that 32gig model from an e-bay seller, will have it in my hot little hands tomorrow when I get home from work in time for the whole wekend to play with it :). All up with dleviery it cost me $1000 from ebay which is probably what the devices will sell for here in Australia when released given Aple always price gouge the Australian market.
