iPad UK release date confirmed

Hardware is coming to Europe on May 28

Apple has announced a UK release date for its iPad: Friday, May 28.

The iPad will become available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK on the date.

16GB models will go for £429, 32GB for £499 and 64GB for £599. 3G versions will cost you a hefty £529 for 16GB, £599 for 32GB and £699 for 64GB.

The iPad was originally due to release in the UK last month, but Apple delayed it after struggling to meet demand in the US. The iPad launched over the Atlantic on April 3.

UK pre-orders for all iPad models - including both 3G and Wi-Fi-enabled SKUs - will begin next Monday (May 10).

Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore will get the device in July.

Apple has already sold more than a million iPads in the US - shifting 300,000 units on the hardware's first day on shelves.
