International iPad 2 pricing revealed

In preparation for its 25-country international rollout of the iPad 2 tomorrow, Apple has started to reveal its pricing for many of the countries in which the device will be available. According to SetteB.IT, most countries in the eurozone will see the same pricing across the board, with Wi-Fi models priced at €479 for 16GB, €579 for 32GB, and €679 for 64GB; Wi-Fi + 3G units are €120 more than their Wi-Fi-only counterparts. Notably, these prices are slightly higher in France due to government fees. In the UK, iPad 2 Wi-Fi pricing ranges £399 for a 16GB unit to £559 for a 64GB model; Wi-Fi + 3G units are £100 more expensive when not purchased on a contract. Overall, Australia and New Zealand have the cheapest pricing among the 25 new countries, while Denmark, Norway, and Sweden offer the highest prices.

God bless Australia! Ordered mine just then at 12:30am. 2-3 weeks estimated shipping.

What’s going on with Apple Store Online? Didn’t they state that sales would start at 1 a.m. local time? It’s 3 a.m. in New Zealand and it’s still not possible to buy the iPad2 online.

Strange?

It would be GREAT if they actually shipped the iPads already on order before rolling out the rest of the launches.

Note that the prices in that chart for Canada are completely off…  The Canadian prices are simply $20 CAD more than the U.S. numbers. Still odd, mind you, considering the Canadian and U.S. dollars are basically on-par these days, but Apple did the same thing with the new Apple TV—$119 in Canada versus $99 in the U.S.

Edit: Ah, it appears all of those prices are inclusive of sales tax.  The Canadian prices appear to be based on Ontario HST (13%).
