By the end of April, the new iPad will be in 21 more countries, according to Apple. And billboards across America have finally shifted from touting iPad 2 to the new iPad just in time for the roll out -- everywhere else.
Starting Friday, consumers in 12 countries including South Korea will be able to purchase the third-generation tablet. The other 11 are Brunei, Croatia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia, Panama, St. Maarten, Uruguay and Venezuela.
A week later, that Retina display goes to Colombia, Estonia, India, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, South Africa and Thailand.
Prices for the Wi-Fi model in either black or white start at $499 for 16 gigabytes and go up to $699 for 64 gigabytes. The 4G models start at $629 for 16 gigabytes and go up to $829 for 64 gigabytes.
Until recently, some folks across America remarked about prominent billboards and in-store displays promoting the iPad 2 instead of the new device. Several weeks after its March 16 debut here, the new iPad finally has its billboards and bus placards.
