iPad headed to nine new nations Apple has announced that starting on May 28th, the popular iPad tablet will be headed to Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
In the UK, the device will cost 429 for the basic model (Wi-Fi, 16GB) and 699 for the 3G/Wi-Fi/64GB model.

The iPad saw 450,000 sales on its launch day, and recently announced 1 million unit sales. Additionally, 15 million apps have already been downloaded from the iPad App Store, as well as almost 2 million e-books from the iBookStore.

International would-be buyers can pre-order starting next week.

The prices, at least in the UK, are much more expensive then comparable U.S. pricing, but Apple says it is due to VAT, and higher transport costs.
