Apple iPad to launch in Ireland this Friday, July 23rd

Ireland to get iPad two months after UK release

Residents of the Republic of Ireland are to finally have the opportunity to buy the iPad this Friday, July 23rd, almost two months after the Apple tablet landed in UK stores.

Eight other countries that have been waiting for the Apple iPad to launch in their homelands will be fulfilled by the end of this week as Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore all ready themselves for the latest arrival from the fruity tech giants.

Wannabe iPad owners in Ireland have been able to travel north of the boarder to get their hands on the must have tablet since May 28th but this Friday will mark their first opportunity to pick up the device on home soil.

Although still eagerly awaiting the arrival of the original iPad, and the latest mobile handset to come from Apple, the iPhone 4, Irish consumers will have to decide whether or not to wait for the already rumoured iPad 2 expected to follow Apple’s single-year product cycle and arrive at the start of 2011.

Updates and added features for the second gen iPad already include the arrival of new 7-inch and 5.6-inch devices, OLED displays and graphics to rival those of the Xbox 360.

Reading this in Ireland or one of the other soon to be iPad adopting nations? Let us know if you will be picking up the Apple tablet this Friday via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
