Apple launching new iPad in 30 additional countries this weekend

As noted by MacRumors, Apple appears to be preparing to roll out its new iPad to a number of new countries this weekend. The company added a total of 30 new countries to its iPad selection page, including Brazil and Argentina.

Apple has been extremely agressive with its international rollout of the new tablet, and this week’s move will nearly double the amount of countries in which the third-generation iPad is available. Keep reading for more details..

This week’s iPad launch will be split between Friday, May 11th, and Saturday May 12th, and include the following countries:

  • Argentina
  • Aruba
  • Bolivia
  • Botswana
  • Brazil
  • Cambodia
  • Chile
  • Costa Rica
  • Curacao
  • Ecuador
  • French Guiana
  • Guadeloupe
  • Jamaica
  • Kenya
  • Madagascar
  • Malta
  • Martinique
  • Mauritius
  • Morocco
  • Peru
  • Taiwan
  • Tunisia
  • Vietnam
  • Bahrain
  • Egypt
  • Jordan
  • Kuwait
  • Qatar
  • Saudi Arabia
  • United Arab Emirates

Note that China is still missing from this list. And although Apple is still in a legal battle with Proview over the iPad trademark, the tablet is more than likely being stalled by the country’s strict certification process rather than lawyers.

To our international readers: do you plan on picking up a new iPad this weekend?
