Surprisingly Strong iPad Demand Delays Global Launch
Supplying iPad demand outside the US will take a bit more time than Apple initially projected: the new iPad availability date outside the U.S. is at the end of May. Pre-orders won't be accepted for delivery outside the U.S. until May 10. Foreign cell providers are preparing 3G data plans for the iPad, which should be interesting: the device has no contracts and competition will be unfettered everywhere it's launched.
