Apple's new iPad is arriving in 25 additional countries on Friday.
The full list of places where the third-gen tablet is launching today includes Austria, Belgium Bulgaria, the 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.
This is the second wave of countries Apple has rolled the new iPad out to. It first hit stores on March 16 in the U.S., the U.K, Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, Switzerland, Puerto Rico, and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Not surprisingly, the new iPad was an instant hit, selling 3 million units in its first weekend, Apple confirmed last week. Demand for the tablet has remained strong, with wait times on Apple.com at about 2-3 weeks.
The updated tablet includes a Retina Display, 4G LTE connectivity, an improved camera, and the new A5X processor with a quad-core GPU, among other things. However, the new iPad hasn't debuted without complaints; According to a thread on Apple Forums, several users are reporting connection issues with the new gadget. Some users have said that their new iPad's Wi-Fi connection is slow at best.
That's not the only criticism of Apple's latest launch. Earlier this week, there were reports that the updated tablet runs about 10 degrees hotter than the iPad 2. Apple denied that it was an issue and said the new iPad runs "well within our thermal specifications."
