Our English-speaking friends across the pond have been anxiously awaiting pricing and availability dates for the iPad. Macworld UK's Nick Spence
notes that both the Wi-Fi and 3G models will be available in late April, meaning that developers in the UK who want to get their hands on an iPad earlier may have to consider flying to the US on April 3rd.
Spence reported that Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, and Switzerland will also see the iPad shipping in late April.
Based on the exchange rate for both the US Dollar and UK Pound Sterling, Macworld UK estimated the following prices for the iPad models:
- iPad Wi-Fi: £417 (16GB); £500 (32GB); £584 (64GB)
- Wi-Fi + 3G: £526 (16GB); £610 (32GB); £693 (64GB)
The estimated prices also add the 17.5% Value Added Tax, which is included in cost of goods in the UK.
