Posted in iPad by Conner Flynn on April 20th, 2011

As we all know by now, you can’t keep Apple products down. They assimilate society like the Borg and spread across the globe, just not in large cube-ships. So it is no surprise that Apple will launch the iPad 2 in 13 more countries next week.

We aren’t sure which countries these are, but so far this month Apple has launched the device in places like Singapore, Hong Kong and South Korea. There’s just no stopping the iPad 2. The company’s international push started on March 25th.

Three months after Canadians got a taste of Netflix, CEO Reed Hastings says that the move was a success and that the company will expand its service to other countries in 2011.

Citing “surprisingly strong US demand,” Apple has delayed the international launch of the iPad by one month. It’s strange that Apple wouldn’t realize that the demand would be so high.
