News just in from Apple - iPad delayed, arrives in UK late May
Gah! We said last week that if Apple were going to announce the launch of the iPad in the UK for the end of April, they had to do it before now. They didn't, and they're not. The UK iPad launch has been postponed until "late May" according to the Apple website.
Apple is citing US sales "far higher than we predicted" as the key reason for the delay, but surely the UK general election also threatened to take the shine off Apple dominating the media in late April; after all. Apple has announced that online pre-orders will begin on 10 May; O2 has said it'll be offering tariffs for the iPad, and TechRadar reports Vodafone will also sell the device.
