Third-party retailers onboard
Apple will finally launch the iPad in Sweden tomorrow, November 30th, several media outlets have confirmed. The tablet should be available from third-party vendors like Elgiganten and Media Markt, the latter of which is holding a midnight launch event. Prices are so far unpublished, but are rumored to be ranging from 5,000 SEK ($712) for a 16GB Wi-Fi model up to 8,300 SEK ($1,181) for a 64GB 3G tablet.
The iPad is expected to become available in several Nordic countries soon, including Norway, Finland and Denmark. A Danish newspaper is in fact said to have accidentally printed an ad a day early, showing prices between 3,799 and 5,999 DEK. These are equivalent to 4,750 and 7,500 SEK, which could lead to Swedish shoppers crossing the border to save money.
