Apple’s new tablet (or New iPad) has been an overwhelming success so far. Success brings desire for more success.
That is why, Apple recently announced day that it sold more than three million iPads during its opening weekend, which is a new record for tablet sales.
Apple’s planning of supply was really nice. This is because despite such high demand and sales, iPads are still available in huge amount. Retailers still have tons of the tablets on hand, and Apple is looking to launch the new iPad in 24 more countries this Friday.
The latest iPad (nicknamed as iPad 3) is already available in 12 countries, including the US, Canada and France. And appears that Apple is looking to make that 36 by week’s end. Starting at 8:00 AM local time on Friday morning, the latest tablet from Apple will become available in:
Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macau, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.
People in these countries will be able to find the new iPad online, in Apple’s retail stores, and in select Apple Authorized Resellers.
This is the fastest international rollout for any product launched by Apple. This really speaks to its strong supply chain presence. Last year, iPad 2 supply was scarce. It took Apple several months to catch up to consumer demand.
