The new iPad goes on sale in 24 more countries today

If Apple's servers seem a little slow today, it might be because today is the day Apple launches its new iPad. Well, it is launch day if you live in one of the 24 additional countries where Apple is rolling out its introduction.
The new iPad will become available today in the following countries (those with Apple retail stores in bold): Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Macau, Mexico, The Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden.

Retailers are not reporting shortages of the new iPad, though the wait for a new iPad ordered online is currently 1-2 weeks – so the retail option appears to be the best way to go.
