International iPad 2 online orders going live, already 2-3 week wait for shipping

It's March 25 in Australia and that means international iPad 2 online orders have begun going live... but with a 2-3 week estimate on shipping. Other online stores are also up now, like Canada and UK, but simply list iPad 2 as currently unavailable at the moment (that should change as 1am rolls around in those time zones -- though we still don't know if Canada will be PDT or EDT.)

Czech Republic iPad 2 site says launch happening on April 25?

A 9to5Mac reader from the Czech Republic sent them a screenshot from the localized Apple website touting an April 25 launch for iPad 2, which is later than Apple's previously announced March 25 date. Since April 25 is a Monday as opposed to March 25, which is a Friday, it could just be a misprint. Unless we hear otherwise from Apple, that's what we'll assume it is. Even if accurate, there could be special circumstances unique to Czech that have caused the delay, or Apple might be further splitting up its international launch, or if more countries will be postponed are all unknowns at this point.

Jobs: iPad has competitors flummoxed

<img src="/sites/imore.com/files/images/stories/2010/11/Jobsipad.jpg" alt=Jobs: iPad has competitors flummoxed" title="Jobs: iPad has competitors flummoxed" width="400" height="224" class="aligncenter size-full wp-image-43950" />

Apple's Steve Jobs took the stage immediately today as part of the iPad 2 event with 15 million sold and 90% market share. That's more than every tablet PC ever sold.

Jobs said it "flummoxed" competitors. While some made fun of Jobs calling iPad magical, and others complained about the price, Jobs said to "ask our competitors now". (Referring to the difficulty in matching iPad's price point.)

Jobs showed off 65,000 apps for iPad and 100 -- and they were being generous, he says -- for Android 3.0 Honeycomb and then went into a video of Apple execs, users, educators, professionals, and others proclaiming 2010 the year of the iPad.
