    Khel,

    No one seems to have any specific date, just "late April" is all we are seeing.

    a friend of mine works for T-Mobile Germany and just snapped some info on the aisle where they (T-Mobile) are still considering to offer a subvention if you buy an iPad with a data-plan.

    Maybe Apple is still negotiating with the carriers in Europe, what to offer. Especially Germany is still very, very strict with the one-carrier-policy.

    Anywhere else Vodafone at least is offering the device.

    Funny thing is, that you can get imported unlocked 3GS 32GB for €900, but if you just drive to Belgium, Italy or Czech Republic you can get the same device €200 less. And sometimes straight away from Apple....

    On the other hand, Apple has changed their pricing policy for Germany about 6-9 months ago. Now you can buy most products for a adequate price in comparison to the US list price. i.e. MacBook Pro 15" is $1999 (= €1485), German price is €1799.

    So I reckon that Apple's price for the iPad in Europe could be €449, €549 and €649.
    We will see with what they will come up.......
