Apple today announced that it is delaying the release of the iPad for international markets by one month because "demand is far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks."

In its media advisory Apple also reveals that the company has already sold over 500,000 Wi-Fi iPads to-date and that it has taken a large number of pre-orders for the 3G models which will ship by the end of April.

Apple will announce international pricing and begin taking pre-orders for international iPads on Monday, May 10, 2010.
