Canadian iPad Launching April 24, International and 3G Version Too? claims they've heard from a source with "close ties to the Apple Store" that the weekend of April 24 has been marked as a "black out" period, which means no vacations, which means they think iPad launch day in the Great White North.

Since the iPad is set to launch in several other countries, including the UK in "late April", and the iPad 3G is also set to launch in "late April", we're taking only one tiny little step to the conclusion that maybe April 24 will be all those launch days as well.

Sounds reasonable, n'est ce pas?
