Apple said its iPad 2 will hit 25 more countries on Friday and its international rollout is likely to put it above 1 million units since the tablet's debut earlier this month. In a statement, Apple CEO Steve Jobs didn't provide any iPad 2 sales figures. He just cited "amazing demand" and said the company is "working hard to build enough iPads for everyone."
The international rollout will hit the following countries beginning Friday at 5 p.m. local time: Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.
Apple added that Hong Kong, Korea and Singapore will get the iPad 2 in April.
The pricing for the iPad 2 is the same as the U.S. The device starts at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model.
