Apple will postpone the start of iPad 2 sales in Japan owing to the earthquake and the human tragedy that has followed in its wake.
"We are delaying the launch of the iPad 2 in Japan while the country and our teams focus on recovering from the recent disaster," Apple spokeswoman Natalie Kerris said in an e-mail. "Our hearts go out to the people of Japan, including our employees and their families, who have been impacted by this terrible tragedy."
Sales of the iPad 2 were slated to begin there on March 25, along with 25 other countries around the globe.
The iPad 2 is also getting its share of positive reviews, with many citing increased performance and new features like dual cameras and iMovie software.
