In typically confusing style Apple has announced the launch dates for its iPad. Well, it had for the US. And only then for the Wi-Fi version. For the Wi-Fi + 3G version the dates remain unknown. But it's the end of April, so that's something.
Oh, but you can pre-order the device. Well, you can pre-order both versions online, but you can only pre-order the Wi-Fi version to pick up in store, as that's the only one with a release date. So you can pre-order the Wi-Fi + 3G version but you don't know when you might have it delivered. Simple.
Not in the US? Don't worry, it's simpler still. Both versions will be available in late April, not exactly sure when, but at some point. But then again, that doesn't mean both will ship at the same time, just that both will be available by then. So the Wi-Fi only version may well be out before the Wi-Fi + 3G model as it's slated for a late March availability on the Apple UK web site.
And surely, the one with 3G is the one you want right?
Apple chief Steve Jobs said, "We're excited for customers to get their hands on this magical and revolutionary product." Well, here's a revolutionary idea, why not make it a lot more magical by just being a lot more straightforward about when the damn thing will be launched, alright Jobsworth?
And, yep, it'll run Android rather than RiscOS
