As you can see the prices are in Dollars which means that these gadgets will be available in the US, UK, Australia, Germany, France, Canada, Singapore, Hong Kong, Germany, Puerto Rico and Switzerland from 16th March and some more countries (excluding India) will be added to the list by the end of March.

Did we miss out India well we had to as it will be sometime before the iPad 3 is made available in India, no officially word from Apple though! But with the entry of iPad we may soon see prices of iPad 2 dropping.
