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.
