iPad 3 Launching in Germany on March 23?

German site iFun.de reports [Google translation] that has it has received information from a source "to be taken seriously" claiming that the iPad 3 will debut there on Friday, March 23.


No other details on the claim are offered, although the report does conflict with an Asian report from earlier today claiming that the iPad 3 would begin appearing in Europe in April following a mid-March launch in the United States.

With no other information to go on and uncertain reliability for the report's source, we hesitate to put too much weight on the claim, but we are noting it for interest and discussion.

Has there ever been an iPhone/iPad launch on a Thursday? It'd be really unusual for them to launch on that day over Friday.

Hadn't considered there being a queue, though I don't see Berlin as being a queuing kind of town. ;)


More of a mad free for all!

Shame the Apple Store in Berlin's not open yet, or I'd buy mine there... :(


I dont get what the point is in standing in a line for it when you can just order it online and have it delivered on the day it comes out :confused:

If true, that puts the U.S. launch at March 16, if Apple holds to similar launch timing as last year (March 11 for U.S., March 25 for international.)


March 23rd is a Thursday and they've always been released on Fridays, so I doubt that.



Original iPad was released on a Saturday AM. So that kill that theory. Also March 23 is a Friday. You need to turn the page on your calendar.

Haha, the site of the store is just 5 minutes from my office.

Hmm... we'll see where I buy my iPad... Maybe in the US on my trip there or maybe back home in Germany...

/Edit

Reading through their post they said: "...a source that, actually, is to be taken seriously". Sounds pretty speculative by my standards.
