Rumour: Apple iPad available to pre-order this week?

According to 'source close to the matter'

The Wi-Fi version of the Apple iPad tablet could be available to pre-order this week, from Thursday 25th February.

The Wi-fi iPad is set to go on sale officially next month, with the more expensive Wi-fi and 3G option to follow in April.

That's the rumour currently doing the rounds, with a "source close to the matter" quoted by the App Advice website, claiming the pre-orders would apply to US customers for now. Apple has a 'Notify Me' section on both the US and UK online Apple Stores, with the promise to notify customers when it's available to order.

The UK Apple Store continues to list the iPad as: "Wi-fi models shipping in late March, 3G models shipping in April. UK pricing to be announced," and "International carrier availability to be announced. 3G data plan may be sold separately."
