Apple iPad Stokes International News Furor

Apple has yet to officially sell a single iPad outside the US, but the international news buzz escalates every day. The week started out with Apple itself announcing a pre-order date of May 10 for the iPad in selected countries. Shipping was postponed twice due to inventory shortages and heavy US demand.

Apple iPhone Earth

Some overseas Apple fans refused to wait, exporting US iPads and ordering from the grey market online. Although the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA) determined that iPads can stay in their bags during screening, Israeli customs agents took a different tack. iPads entering Israel are subject to confiscation.

Evidence Points to Camera in Next iPad

Apple has some interesting things planned for the second generation iPad. With new evidence surfacing every week, it's all but certain the next iPad will include a camera. The question is whether we will be capturing images from the front, back or both sides of the new iPad.

Apple iPad iChat Camera

As expected, iPhone OS 4 has support for the rear-facing iPhone camera, and is coming to the iPad this fall. What's more surprising is TUAW reported that a process called "iChatAgent" is running in the new operating system. Although interesting, Mac users know that iChat can be used without video.

Apple Delays International iPad Release Date

Apple iPad fans outside the US will have to wait an extra month to get their hands on the device. Pre-ordering will open up to users in select countries starting May 10, with a ship date later the same month.

Apple iPad 3G

According to a statement by Apple, the iPad has been "a runaway success" in the US. Due to the half a million units sold in its first week and Wi-Fi + 3F models shipping later in April, Apple decided to push back its plans for international distribution.

Google Chrome Tablet

The New York Times has confirmed a Google device is in development, and reports that CEO Eric Schmidt will base his tablet on the Android operating system. The company has already had secret discussions with a few publishers to work on delivering content to the future tablet.

Geohot Jailbreaks Apple iPad With Blackra1n

Just a few short days ago, iPhone Dev-Team member MuscleNerd demonstrated an initial porting of the Spirit jailbreak by @comex to the iPad. Now George Hotz (aka Geohot) is working on his blackra1n software to jailbreak the iPad.

Apple iPad Jailbroken blackra1n

Seen in the blog photo are blackra1n and Cydia icons (as some have pointed out, probably just a mockup) on Gehot's iPad screen. Proving that he's making progress, Geohot posted keys for the iPad 3.2 firmware and bootrom on his blog with a one-line comment reading, "This is more exciting than a lot of you realize." Only a day later he revealed that "verbose iPads look cool" and tweeted the picture below.
