Apple iPad 2 International Markets Launches on March 25th 2011

I know many Malaysians are wondering when will iPad 2 launched in Malaysia. I am also one of them but it seems that iPad 2 will take some time to come to Malaysia. iPad 2 Malaysia… Let’s hope that iPad 2 will not have shortage of shipments so that Apple can launch iPad 2 in more countries.

iPad 2 launch countries

Here’s the list of the iPad 2 launches in the international countries. Sadly Malaysia is not in the list.

  • Australia
  • Austria
  • Belgium
  • Canada
  • Czech Republic
  • Denmark
  • Finland
  • France
  • Germany
  • Greece
  • Iceland
  • Italy
  • Ireland
  • Hungary
  • Japan
  • Luxemborg
  • Mexico
  • Netherlands
  • New Zealand
  • Norway
  • Poland
  • Portugal
  • Spain
  • Sweden
  • Switzerland
  • UK

Australia, New Zealand and Japan are among the first Asian countries to have iPad 2. *admiring them :-)*

One of the reasons that I have read in the Internet about the late launching of iPad2 in Asian countries like Malaysia, Singapore, India and so on is because of the existence of grey markets. This is really sad.

One blog claims that iPad 2 will be coming to Singapore in two months time which is around May 2011 or June 2011. Another blogger claim that iPad 2 will be launched in Malaysia around July 2011 or August 2011. There’s just too much speculation. I really wonder when will iPad 2 comes to Malaysia and Singapore?

Will iPad 2 Malaysia cheaper than other countries just like previous iPad?

What’s your say?

    for sure iPad 2 arrive in Malaysia after Singapore did… so sad…

  2. johnkhor says:

    Yeah. It’s the norm. My friend said that Malaysia is a dumpsite. They will push all the iPad 1st generation before giving us iPad 2.

  3. geckoandfly says:

    By the time iPad 2 arrives in Malaysia, rumors and screen shot of iPad 3 will be circulating around the internet.

    We are always 6 months behind any launch. Well, they have to dump all the existing iPad 2 somewhere… plus, Malaysian loves to buy pirated products/software/app, we are off no market value to them.

  4. johnkhor says:

    Haha 🙂 Agrees to you 100%. The product refresh from Apple is too fast. It’s good for the US and other developed countries but not for Malaysians. Malaysia is famous for the grey market. What to do? Anyhow, I am planning to get iPad 2 from Japan next month.

  5. Stamp says:

    johnkor, now that japan is in crisis (due to the earthquake and tsunami and subsequent serious problems with their nuclear reactors) are you still going to japan next month?

  6. johnkhor says:

    It’s johnkhor… 🙁 Thanks a lot for your concern. Very nice of you. I am so ‘kam tong’ (touched). I don’t think I will be going to Japan already. 🙁 Cannot see sakura already… Sad… But it’s not important. I pray for the Japan people for their safety and health. 🙂

  7. Stamp says:

    My apology for the typo error, johnkhor……yeah..I am disheartened to see the Japanese suffer so much from this tragedy; natural and man made.

    Now that Apple will delay ipad 2 launch in Japan, will they select another Asian country to replace Japan for this 25 March 11 launch…..?

  8. johnkhor says:

    Yeah. That’s really sad. Now I am grateful that I stayed in Malaysia. Peace of mind. 🙂

    Yeah. That’s what crossed my mind when I read that iPad 2 is delayed in Japan. Maybe it will go to Singapore or Malaysia or Hong Kong? Great minds think a like 🙂

    Ipad2 was sold out in all Apple Singapore outlet yesterday…:-(

  10. johnkhor says:

    @safiah: so nice of Singapore to have so many iPad 2. Malaysia’s iPad 2 stock finished in the first 5 hours after launch.

  11. Stamp says:

    @johnkhor, i got my iPad 2 already, bought from Challenger the mines, last week. i took the chance by pre-booking and paid in full, and i got it the next day (it’s the second batch).

  12. johnkhor says:

    Congrats!!! That”s a smart move. Enjoyed your new iPad 2? By the way, did you buy the Smart Cover?

  13. Stamp says:

    I did not buy the smart cover. I bought a leather case from; and am waiting for the shipment to arrive. The price is about the same (inclusive of shipping) with the apple leather smart cover.

  14. Stamp says:

    and forgot to write, i enjoy fiddling with the iPad 2! love the gadget! what’s so good about apple products is that it is user friendly and one doesnt need to be a mensa member to learn to use them!

  15. johnkhor says:

    Yeah. That’s true. My girlfriend is planning to get one for her parents so that they can read newspaper and Facebook easier. 🙂
