The new iPad launches in 25 more countries today
March 24, 2012
A week on from the first wave of new iPad releases, Apple is pushing out its latest tablet to a number of additional territories. Among the new markets are Mexico, New Zealand, all of Scandinavia, and Vlad Savov's motherland of Bulgaria. Pricing varies from country to country — in Spain the new iPad starts at €479 (around $635) for the 16GB model, in Luxembourg it's only €455.25 ($605), and in heavily-taxed Norway the same tablet costs 3,790 kroner ($655).
The complete list of new markets is:
* Czech Republic
* The Netherlands
* New Zealand
Can Apple spark a flurry of retail spending and single-handedly pull Greece out of recession? Will there be riots on the streets of Bucharest when buyers discover they can't use LTE? Is the Ukraine preparing to invade Hungary to seize its new iPad stock? Probably not. Are any of you buying one today? Probably so.
