Derek loves nothing more than punching a remote location into a GPS, queuing up some music and heading out on a long drive, so it's a good thing he's in charge of CNET Australia's Car Tech channel.

Apple has announced that the iPad in both its 3G and Wi-Fi forms will go on sale in Australia in late April 2010.

Both the Wi-Fi and 3G models will hit Australian stores at the same time, but specifics about pricing and available capacities won't be announced until early April. There's also been no word yet on carriers or plans for the 3G units.

The Wi-Fi version of the iPad will be available in US stores on Saturday, 3 April for between US$499 and US$699, depending on the capacity. Americans wishing to buy the 3G-enabled iPad will have to wait until late April like customers in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK.

If all it does is aid the improvement of language to some, it will be deemed successful.

Yeah this isn't really worthy of a news post.

You'd have to be extraordinarily thick-headed to ever buy one of those things, and the release date doesn't change that simple FACT

Ummm, with respect, that's not news. Pricing and date have been on the Apple AU website for at least a week and I suspect longer.

So don't read it then, Richard. I didn't know about this, and it was great informative news to me.
