Apple Inc. said Friday its iPad tablet computer will be available in nine more countries, including Germany and the U.K., on May 28 — with pre-orders starting Monday.
Apple delayed the international launch of the device last month, saying sales in the U.S. were unexpectedly strong. The iPad went on sale in the U.S. in April and has sold more than a million units since.
The iPad is now going to Australia, Canada, France, Italy, Japan, Spain and Switzerland.
Apple said it plans to release the iPad in Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore in July.
