Apple has announced that they are prepared to launch their iPad Tablet PC in more markets later this week.

Apple iPad would arrive in Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore from this weekend.

All the models would be available on sale in these markets. Since the iPad is sold as an unlocked device, users would be free to use their choice of mobile connections.

It remains to be seen if mobile service providers in these markets have the micro-sims in stock as the iPad does not support regular SIM cards.

Apple iPad is already available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland, UK and USA.
