Rest Of World Needs To Wait An Extra Month For Their iPads

Fanboys and girls around the world will have to put up with their regular-size iPod Touches for a few extra weeks — Apple has announced that they’re delaying the non-U.S. release of the iPad for a month.

“Faced with this surprisingly strong U.S. demand, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the international launch of iPad by one month, until the end of May,” Apple said in a statement.

Whether you believe them or not, Apple claims the domestic demand for iPads is “far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks.”

Next Monday, Apple plans to begin taking online orders for international customers.
