White iPhone 4 debuts around the world April 28

PanARMENIAN.Net - After delaying the launch if the iPad 2 in Japan following the earthquake and tsunami disaster, Apple is set to launch its second-generation tablet there this Thursday, April 28, while the long-awaited white iPhone 4 will debut there and other countries around the world.

According to Japanese business daily Nikkei, the iPad 2 is set to be available this week at the seven retail stores run by Apple in Japan. In addition, customers in the Land of the Rising Sun will also be able to buy the touchscreen tablet at SoftBank stores, and via Apple's website.

The iPad 2 was originally set to launch in Japan along with 25 other countries on March 25, but Apple delayed that launch after the deadly earthquake disaster. The company said the delay would allow its teams to focus on recovery, rather than launching a new product.

Following the massive tragedy in Japan, Apple's retail stores were said to have become a rallying point for citizens. Crowds reportedly flocked to Apple's stores to gain INternet access, and recharge their phones so they could make calls and reach loved ones.

Thursday will be a big day for Apple products in Japan, as it is also expected to mark the start of sales of the white iPhone 4 there and around the world. MacRumors on Wednesday confirmed that the white iPhone 4 has been advertised for sale on April 28, Apple Insider reported.
