New iPad Hits 30 More Countries

Apple is planning its iPad expansion to reach world domination status, by adding 30 more countries to the iPad's global market. Brazil is the largest country where the third generation iPad will became available starting this weekend.

The announcement was made by Apple's website, with the next step of the international rollout planned for this weekend including 13 countries from Latin America, as Apple's selection page for this region reveals.

Starting on 11th May, the new iPad will become available in Argentina, Aruba, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Curaçao, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Martinique, Peru. Also occuring on this same day, Apple's latest tablet will be available to customers from Botswana, Cambodia, Kenya, Madagascar, Malta, Mauritius, Morocco, Taiwan, Tunisia and Vietnam.

A day later, on 12th May, the new iPad becomes available in seven national markets from the Middle East: Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates. Last weekend, Apple launched the device in Turkey.

However, what won't come as much of a surprise is the non-release of the new iPad in China. After the latest stage of the iPad international rollout comes to a close, the device will officially be available in 90 countries around the world, two months after its initial release.
