GLOBAL - The famous Apple iPad has finally launched in several new countries last Friday.
The tablet has sold more than three million units since it arrived at store shelves early this year, and was only available in the USA and eight more countries.
The list of countries to get the iPad include Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore. Apple has stated that both Wi-Fi-only and 3G models will be available at Apple outlets at launch.
