New iPad Launches in 12 New Countries as Shipping Estimates Fall to 5-7 Days

As announced earlier this week, Apple today began selling the new iPad in twelve new countries: Brunei, Croatia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia, Panama, South Korea, Saint Maarten, Uruguay and Venezuela. An additional nine countries will see the new iPad launch a week from today.


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.
