New iPad Launches in 12 New Countries as Shipping Estimates Fall to 5-7 Days
Just as Apple expands availability of the device yet again, the company is also reducing shipping estimates in a number of markets, now citing 5-7 business days for new orders instead of the 1-2 week estimate that has been in place for the past month. The new 5-7 business day estimates appear to be in effect in Apple's North American and Asia/Pacific distribution channels, but have not yet made their way to the company's European channel, where estimates remain at 1-2 weeks.
Update: Fortune posts a video of the new iPad going on sale at an Apple reseller in South Korea.
