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.
With the first international launch date rapidly approaching -- this Friday in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada,
Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK -- we'll hopefully hear one way or another from Apple early this week.
Typo or delay, what do you think? Let us know!
