Third-gen iPad to come to 30 more countries by May 12th

Argentina, Brazil among major launch regions

Apple is bringing the third-generation iPad to 30 more countries this weekend, the company has announced. The bulk of launches will happen on May 11th; for that day the list includes Argentina, Aruba, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, Costa Rica, Curacao, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Kenya, Madagascar, Malta, Martinique, Mauritius, Morocco, Peru, Taiwan, Tunisia, and Vietnam. Several Middle Eastern countries will get the tablet on May 12th, those being Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, and the United Arab Emirates.

The new iPad is now available in almost 90 countries. While relatively few regions are left as a part of Apple's global rollout, one of the next targets is bound to be mainland China. The country is by default one of Apple's largest markets, but tougher to crack due to numerous regulatory requirements. The company is also facing legal battles over the iPad trademark, which may make it hesitant to commit to a new product.
