One week folks, that’s all the waiting you’ll have to do before getting your hands on the new iPad.

You can pre-order the new iPad starting today, with availability on March 16th — the same day as the new Apple TV.

Thankfully, the prices for the devices have remained the same as the current generation iPads, with Wi-Fi only flavors going for $499, $599, and $699 for 16, 32, and 64GB respectively. LTE models will go for $629, $729, and $829 for the same amount of storage space.

As with the current generation, there will be both black and white versions, with separate LTE models for both Verizon and AT&T…

The new iPad will be initially available in 10 different countries on March 16th, which include the following: United States, Canada, United Kingdom, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Australia.

A week later, on March 23rd, the new iPad launch in various other areas including: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macau, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, and Sweden.

Hopefully your country was included in either the March 16th or 23rd release date. if not, you can still consider importing the new iPad to your place of residence.

    I had a gamble with my friend that the iPad 3 will come before April in my country, Singapore. I said before April and he chose after. I won the bet!!!!!! Hopefully he will honor his promise.

      CAN SOMEONE VERIFY THIS AGAIN??? Is the new iPad really coming to Singapore on the 16th of March??L

  • One thing that I’m dying to know, did they say if LTE models ate US only? We have LTE here in Australia on Telstra and in pretty sure it uses the same band as AT&T. Im dying to have one for work!

  • On another note, it’s exciting I see Australia is up there first with the other big countries in the world.

    March 16th, locked in, time to rejoin the iPad crew, this thing looks like a beast.

  • Can’t wait to it to get to Norway, the release note allmost made me jizz.

  • we go to the Apple Store & pre-order? or….How’s this gonna work.since the Apple Store is Down.
