Apple announced Friday that its popular iPad touchscreen computers will be available in nine more countries from 28 May. Apple has already sold more than one million iPad units in the US.

AFP - Apple announced Friday that its mass market iPad touchscreen portable computer will go on sale outside the United States in nine major countries for the first time on May 28.

The much-anticipated consumer gadget was launched on the US domestic market on April 3, but such was demand that the Californian firm was forced to delay deliveries to international consumers.

Now, fans in Australia, Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and Switzerland can look forward to seeing them in the shops before the end of the month, Apple's statement said.
