iPad 2 Japan Launch Delayed By Apple

The iPad 2 went on sale in the US last week, and it is scheduled to go on sale in the UK, Europe and Japan on the 25th of March, but now it looks like Apple has decided to delay the launch of the iPad 2 in Japan in the wake of the earthquake and tsunami.

Apple hasn’t given a new date for when the iPad 2 will be available in Japan, although an Apple spokesperson did tell Reuters that the launch has been delayed.
