iPad 2 Coming to UK this Friday

Apple has announced that the iPad 2 will be launching in the UK this Friday (March 25) as expected. The launch is also happening in 24 other countries at the same time.

The new tablet will be going on sale at 1am this coming Friday where you’ll be able to place a pre-order. Apple will also be opening its doors in all the Apple stores at 5pm local time.

“While competitors are still struggling to catch up with our first iPad, we’ve changed the game again with iPad 2,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’re experiencing amazing demand for iPad 2 in the US, and customers around the world have told us they can’t wait to get their hands on it. We appreciate everyone’s patience and we are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone.”

Prices haven’t been made official just yet although we are hearing hints that it could actually be cheaper than the launch price of the original iPad, with the 16GB WiFi version costing £399 and the 3G version costing £499. We’ll get confirmation of these prices as soon as Apple make it official. The full press release can be found over at Apple.
