ipad 2 delayed in japan

Due to the recent tragic events, Apple had made the decision to delay the iPad 2's launch in Japan.

Here's what Apple said about it in a statement:

"We are delaying the launch of the iPad 2 in Japan while the country and our teams focus on recovering from the recent disaster. Our hearts go out to the people of Japan, including our employees and their families, who have been impacted by this terrible tragedy."

In the meanwhile, Apple has announced that they'll be collecting donations for the Red Cross on their iTunes site.

Thank you for getting involved, Apple! Very nice to hear.

We continue to send out our thoughts and prayers to everyone affected by the tragedy in Japan.

    If only all the gays were in Japan the day of the tsunami…

    Great to hear this! Team Apple shows their sympathy to their brothers and sisters in Japan.

    WTF. Anyone with a basic understanding of economics and an IQ above room temperature can see that this doesn't benefit the people of Japan at ALL. The decision may strategically benefit APPLE, but Japan? Puh-LEEZE. Even the Bank of Japan is hurting the Japanese people by pumping new YEN into the system to counteract the raising value of the YEN after people bailed from the stock market and invested in currency reserves. A higher valued currency can only benefit the people trying to rebuild since they need increased purchasing power to buy natural resources, and increased access to technology can only assist that cause.

    APPLE is in it for ITSELF. Not the people of Japan. Douches.

    Thats because iPad knows they are fighting for their life's right now and not out buying over priced stupid shit and by the time Japan gets on their feet the iPad 2 will be out dated meaning if they would have released it to Japan the stores would be over flowed with outdated ipad 2's

    Re: Weylon Dobranski – Ahmen to that!
    Perez is licking Apples ass so they will comp him a new iPad. Go a head, work that angle Perez, but don't patronize your readers.

    In other words, cause too much other stuff is going on the sales will flop and they will relaunch when things quieten down. Apple really are cu*ts!!!

    Does the iPad 2 come with food, shelter, water, blankets, and any other basic necessities needed to get through a disaster? No? Then I think it's pretty safe to assume that a delayed release date is the last thing on anyone's mind right now… Yeeesh. People are stupid.

    Re: SNARKYKELLYISSNARKY – That IS an iPad2. The FaceTime camera at the top (in the black bezel area) is a feature exclusive to the new iPad model. I should now. I'm typing this on an iPad2.
