iPad 2 Singapore Release Date
We, in Singapore, usually have to wait until the 2nd tier or even 3rd tier launch date which could be as long as 6 months after the official launch in the US.
I am hoping that the iPad 2 release date in Singapore to be within 45 days of the initial launch and I could pre-order at Apple Store tomorrow.
[UPDATE] Apple released a press release on Mar 22, 2011 announcing that the iPad 2 will be available in Singapore, Hong Kong and Korea in April.
