Clear your diaries, Apple Fanbois: the iPad will be available on April 3. That’s a Saturday, so pack the kids off to granny’s on Thursday and start queuing at the closest Apple Store. Only the Wi-Fi models will be available at first, but the 3G models will be available by the end of the month. You’ll be able to pre-order them online from next Friday, March 12, or reserve a unit to pick up on the launch date. The rest of the world will have to wait until end of April, when all models will be available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.
