Apple started selling the iPad 2 in 25 more countries today. Those would be: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK. That’s the Wi-Fi only models.
The Wi-Fi + 3G models will be available in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and additional countries in April.
“While competitors are still struggling to catch up with our first iPad, we’ve changed the game again with iPad 2,” said Apple CEO Steve Jobs. “We’re experiencing amazing demand for iPad 2 in the US, and customers around the world have told us they can’t wait to get their hands on it. We appreciate everyone’s patience and we are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”
The web experience should be getting a lot better in general on the iPad. New functionality for WordPress.com blogs and a plugin for WordPress.org sef-hosted blogs should ensure that. That’s a pretty good chunk of the popular web, and there will only be more tools from other platforms to come, I’m sure.
The iPad 2 went on sale at Apple retail stores and Apple Authorized Resellers at 5 pm local time and online at the Apple Store beginning at 1 am.
