No delay to iPad 2 UK launch

Apple says tablet is on track for release this Friday

The iPad 2 will launch in the UK on Friday as initially planned, Apple has confirmed.

It was speculated that there could be delays to the tablet's global rollout following reports that a number of key components are sourced from disaster-struck Japan, but the UK won't be a casualty.


The UK launch of the original iPad was pushed back by a month in order to help satisfy demand in the US, and there had also been fears that the situation would repeat itself with iPad 2.

But an Apple spokesperson told TechRadar: "Everything that is on the website still holds true; the website says 25 March and that's when it'll be."
