    Apple has announced that its long-awaited iPad will be available for purchase for consumers starting on Saturday, April 3, while pre-orders for the multi-touch device will begin on March 12.

    While the Wi-Fi model will be the only available at first, the 3G-capable iPad is expected to arrive in late April. In addition, all versions of the hardware will be available in the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, Australia, Italy, Japan, Span and Switzerland in late April.

    Preorders for the iPad will begin on March 12, with both the Wi-Fi and 3G models available for reserve from apple.com. The Wi-Fi model will be available in-store as well on Saturday, April 3. That date is just a few days later than the 60-day launch window Apple announced at the device's unveiling in late January.

    Interestingly, no news in the UK yet, not even pricing!

    I like that in the US you'll be able to preorder the device for pickup at a store, I hope they do that in the UK as well!

    Hmm any news on what the 3G pricing will be - presumably you'll need some sort of contract.

    Also for lthose of us too lazy to google will you be able to upgrade the flash drive with an SD card do you know ?

    Looks like a month later for the poor old UK though as usual. So much for a simultaneous worldwide launch.

    iPad will be available in both Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G models in late April in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. International pricing will be announced in April. iPad will ship in additional countries later this year.

    could be wrong but I dont believe that it has one :/

    People may make peripherals for it using the dock connector or something :/
