Pace of international expansion slows
Apple has quietly revealed that it is launching the third-generation iPad in Guam and the Philippines on May 29th. Rather than making an official announcement, Apple has disclosed the news through its Asian iPad page, which has been updated to show the new locations. Other launch details have yet to be published, but Filipinos will have the advantage of ordering from Apple's online store.
A couple of months after product's latest update, the pace of iPad sales expansion has finally begun to slow. The device is now in roughly 90 regions, leaving Apple little room for growth. The major exception to this is mainland China, where Apple may be waiting to resolve a trademark dispute with Proview before introducing a new iPad.
