You may not want to be counting on that date, as reports now say that due to the earthquake and Tsunami in Japan, this may hold up some parts needed

Apple could be short parts for iPad 2 after Japan quake - thestar.com

I'm not convinced that will delay the launch to the 24 countries on the 25th, the demand in the states seems like the bigger threat to that. No body knows how long before shortages of those parts would actually begin to affect iPad 2 production, as well who knows when the iPad 2s set to be sold on the 25th were actually made.

Then there is also this Apple's component deals should help it weather Japan crisis | Apple - CNET News

iPad 2 sells out in USA, March 25th international launch in doubt - TUAW

iPad 2 International Launch Delay Now Seems 'Inevitable'

I'd be surprised if the international launch happens on March 25.

It seems to me everyone has been expecting a delay from the word go just because it happened last year with iPad 1, but apple has had huge demands with the iphone in the past and never delayed the international launches of those.

I'm with Liam, I doubt this is going to launch on time and if it does, it will be with a paltry amount of units per store and 4-5 week delays for online orders (which is the current situation in the states right now).

Pretty sure I can wait until things calm down. Good grief. It's a iPad. Not the end of all wars.

So much speculation. I'll add more.
Ok, Apple announced a specific date for the international launch this year. Last year it was just 'April'.
If Apple is announcing a specific date, with so many countries, you can bet its been putting aside iPads for that launch.
You don't don't just say you're launching in 25 countries and then just hope you can make enough iPads in 2 weeks to fill the orders.
Will Apple dip into its international batch for Americans? It could, but it's unlikely it has since the delay online is 4-5 weeks. Could that change in a week? Sure but unlkely.
As for parts from Japan - been reading and talking to business people. They say a huge company like Apple will already have PLENTY of the parts needed to keep rolling out devices. Where the problem could arise is with the launch of the next device - likely the iPhone 5.
But again, it's all speculation.
If there is going to be a delay, Apple will likely announce it today. Always give bad news on a Friday. Otherwise, I think the international launch is still a go.

ericlewis91 thanks for the info, glad some retailer is giving a time, although future shop could always end up wrong.

KMPhotos that has been my thinking all along, it is what makes the most sense to me. When apple gave an exact date this time I figured they knew no matter what happened with sales in the US that they would have enough for the other 25 countries. Apple knew they would sell like crazy in the US, this is not their first time releasing a highly anticipated product, they know what they are doing.
