UK iPad 2 launch 'not until July'

The launch of the second-generation iPad will not take place until at least April in the US and July in other markets, a report has claimed.

MacNotes.de cites "reliable sources" that reckon the iPad 2 won't launch in the US until 2 April at the earliest.

This will disappoint those who believe the iPad 2 to be coming in early February, when Apple Store staff have reportedly been banned from taking holidays, though the news is even worse for those outside the US.

According to the report, the iPad 2 will not be on sale in international markets for another three months after the US launch, meaning it could be July before UK customers can get their hands on one unless they import.

MacNotes.de reckons that the dates fit in with the activities of component manufacturers including Foxconn, which is reportedly expanding its manufacturing capabilities to meet demand for the next-generation iPad.

The news comes in the same week that Digg founder Kevin Rose confidently predicted that the iPad 2 would be announced in early February.

The recent Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas also sparked a number of iPad 2 rumours, with a video seemingly showing a dummy device coming to light earlier this week, as well as several reported sightings of a mocked-up iPad 2 shell.
