Buyers outside the United States who planned on buying iPads are going to have to grit their teeth a while longer yet, as the release date has changed.
Based on the strong U.S. demand for Apple's new iPads, the company has decided it would delay the product's international release for a month.
According to the official Apple statement on the matter, the sale of 500,000 of the tablets stateside in its first week of availability has put the screws to the supply. The company has "made the difficult decision to postpone the international launch of iPad by one month, until the end of May"
Apple "will announce international pricing and begin taking online pre-orders on Monday, May 10."
