Apple iPad 2
Apple has just sent us an official press release confirming the launch of the iPad 2 this coming Friday 25th March, both in the official online store and in the physical Apple stores in Barcelona and Madrid. Watch out for the key times: that day we will be able to buy the iPad 2 on the Apple Store website at from 2am (I think many of you will be awake on Thursday night 24th to book it) and the physical Apple Store and the Premium Resellers will put it on sale at 5pm . It is expected that these stores will organize a queue and a special staff device for the launch.
The press release also confirms the prices of the iPad 2 in Spain : 479, 579 and 679 euros for the three Wifi models of 16, 32 and 64 GB and 599, 699 and 799 euros for the three equivalent models with 3G connection to mobile data networks. If there are no surprises, there will be MicroSIM cards from the same companies: Movistar, Vodafone, Orange and Simyo.
Apple has also revealed that following this launch (which is being held in conjunction with 25 countries following the first launch in the United States), the iPad 2 will arrive in Honk Kong, Korea, Singapore and other countries in April . Of course, we are glad that rumours of a possible delay in its arrival have not been true. Next stop: queues at the Apple Store to receive the iPad 2 in Spain.
