New iPad 3

The all new iPad (iPad 3?) has just been announced, and pre-orders start now March 7!

The actual release date is March 16, and you can expect the traditionally giant lines and sell-outs as usual. because of this, pre-ordering is highly recommended if you don’t want to wait in lines at Apple Stores, or deal with the inevitable supply deficits that have occurred with every major new iOS product launch.

You can now pre-order on Apple’s Online Store, either directly on the website or through the mobile app. If you’re having problems checking out through, download the free Apple Store app from iTunes and check out there instead.

    When is it launching in India? Any guess?

  2. […] Keep in mind that iPad 3 specs are the same other than the storage capacity and 4G capability. All models have the same gorgeous Retina display, all models have the same processor and graphics abilities, and all models include the same camera. The only other difference between models ends up being the availability during the initial months, with the 16GB models tending to sell out faster than anything else. To avoid that, you may want to pre-order now. […]

    According to this post Spain gets the new iPad on the 16th of March and on the 23rd of March.

    When I saw Puertostan in the list, I thought: “What kind of country is that? Never heard of it. Where on earth is it located?” I searched for it on Google Maps, which couldn’t find it. Then I looked at the photo from Engadget on the end of this post and couldn’t find it in the list of Apples keynote. Looks like you just made up your own country. Looks like you renamed Slovenia to Puertostan. :P

  6. Hey!

    You only forgot to mention Slovenia on your list of countries. This is small, but important and beautifule country where also I am from.

    Who wants to bet the pre-orders sell out in less than an hour and the delivery date is pushed back to the end of March?
