Aussie iPadders will have to wait another month

Apple has delayed the launch and release of the iPad in Australia till the end of May, at the earliest.

"Although we have delivered more than 500,000 iPads in the US during its first week, demand is far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks as more people see and touch an iPad," the statement said.

"Faced with this surprisingly strong US demand, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the international launch of iPad by one month, until the end of May. We will announce international pricing and begin taking online pre-orders on Monday, 10 May," Apple said.

It's a global market.

I've received my first iPad, and have a 3G on order for delivery in a week or two.

Only suckers wait.
