New iPad launches in nine more countries
Apple’s third-generation iPad launched in nine additional countries on Friday, stretching the number of total markets in which the iPad is now available for purchase to 57. Apple released its wildly popular iPad tablet in 21 additional countries this month. The Cupertino, California-based company reported earlier this week that it sold 11.8 million iPads during the second fiscal quarter, narrowly missing analysts’ expectations but growing two-and-a-half times over the same quarter in 2011. BGR reviewed the new iPad in March and said its only competition is the iPad 2, and we revisited the tablet a month later when the iPad completely changed our perspective on tablets.
