Aussies to get iPad on May 28

iPad devices start from $629 to $1049 for each unit

The iPad will launch in Australia on May 28. Local pricing will range from $629 for the bottom-tiered unit up to $1049 for the top line product.

Apple will start taking pre-orders today. Its iBooks store will be available on launch. The service allows users to purchase and download books and texts for reading on the iPad.

The release follows a delay in the initial date for shipment. International iPad shipment dates slipped dramatically after demand in the US far outstripped the vendor’s expectations.

Australia is one of nine countries to make the iPad available on May 28. New Zealand and another eight countries will wait until July to get a chance to buy it.

The iPad has caused some waves in the computer market. The six different versions sold more than more than 1 million units in the first 28 days of release.

Three Wi-Fi only models are available with 16GB, 32GB and 64GB of hard drive space, respectively.

Three more iPads with the same level of hard drive space and built-in 3G modules will be released simultaneously.

Major carriers including Telstra, Optus, Vodafone and 3 Mobile will offer iPad plans.

Australian iPad pricing:

  • 16GB Wi-Fi: $629
  • 32GB Wi-Fi: $759
  • 64GB Wi-Fi: $879
  • 16GB Wi-Fi and 3G: $799
  • 32GB Wi-Fi and 3G: $928
  • 64GB Wi-Fi and 3G: $1049
