Apple has revealed that UK pricing for the iPad will be out 10th May – so that is one date you can pencil into your diary.

“We will announce international pricing and begin taking online pre-orders on Monday, May 10th” says the release.

“We know that many international customers waiting to buy an iPad will be disappointed by this news, but we hope they will be pleased to learn the reason the iPad is a runaway success in the US thus far.”

The official UK release date for the Apple iPad is now ‘end of May’.
