Following carrying out its second leg of the new iPad‘s international roll-out on April 20, Apple will today launch the “Retina” display-boasting tablet in a further 9 countries.
These countries include: Colombia, Estonia, India, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, South Africa and Thailand – and, (as noted by TNW), strangely do not seem to include one of Apple’s growing markets: China.
With today’s roll-out in full swing, Apple’s new iPad is now available in a total of 57 world territories. News of Apple’s expansion into new markets follows on from the firm’s Q2 earnings report released earlier this week, during which the Californian-based company noted it had managed to sell 11.8 Million iPads during the period – (151 percent growth compared to the year-ago quarter), helped along mostly by China‘s adoption rate of the device.
Despite those results, however, Apple is – (perhaps quite perplexedly) – yet to release official confirmation on when those in China might expect to be able to get their hands on the new iPad.
