New iPad not delayed in stores: Apple

SINGAPORE: Apple fans can still get their hands on the new iPad, the third generation of its category, on Friday, 16 March.

Apple has clarified with Channel NewsAsia that the new iPad Wi-Fi models will be available on Friday in 11 territories namely Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Puerto Rico, Singapore, Switzerland, UK and the US Virgin Islands.

Earlier news agency reports created a confusion among Apple fans on Monday regarding its release date. Reports had it that Apple would postpone shipment of new iPads to market by three days, from March 16 to March 19.

Apple said that shipments of its new iPad to customers who order it online may take two to three weeks but that the tablet would still be available in stores on Friday.

Apple, which has set March 16 as the launch date for all sales of the third-generation iPad, said online pre-orders of the device had been going on since March 7.

Apple last Wednesday unveiled the third-generation iPad, enhanced with features aimed at keeping it on top of the booming tablet computer market.

The new iPad boasts a more powerful processor, eye-grabbing resolution on par with that of an iPhone 4S, and the ability to connect to the latest 4G LTE telecom networks that move data faster than their predecessors.

The new iPad screen was billed as the best display ever on a mobile device.

The tablet also features a five-megapixel camera and high-definition video recording.
