For all you iPad fans around the globe, Apple have just announced they will release the iPad 2 this Friday the 25th of March at 5pm local time. Take note that this is 5pm in your country – so actual release times will vary.

iPad 2 with Wi-Fi will be available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK

Suggested retail price is still $499 USD for the entry level 16 GB Wi-Fi model, and prices go up from there. Local prices will of course vary depending on your exchange rate.

If you are still sitting on the fence regarding the new iPad 2, here is the awesome feature line-up for you again:

iPad 2 features an entirely new design that is 33 percent thinner and up to 15 percent lighter than the original iPad, while maintaining the same stunning 9.7-inch LED-backlit LCD screen. iPad 2 features Apple’s new dual-core A5 processor for blazing fast performance and stunning graphics and now includes two cameras, a front-facing VGA camera for FaceTime® and Photo Booth®, and a rear-facing camera that captures 720p HD video, bringing the innovative FaceTime feature to iPad users for the first time. Though it is thinner, lighter, faster and packed with new features, iPad 2 still delivers up to 10 hours of battery life* that users have come to expect.
