The iPad 2 will launch in Japan tomorrow and in 11 other markets on Friday 29 April, Apple has announced.

The device was supposed to launch in Japan on 25 March - the same day as the UK - but this was postponed after the devastating earthquake and tsunami in the north east of the country.

The iPad 2 with Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G in 16GB, 32GB and 64GB models will be available in Japan on April 28 and Hong Kong, India, Israel, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey and UAE on April 29.

Thursday 28 April will be a busy day for Apple, with the white iPhone 4 due to launch in 28 markets around the world, including the UK.
