Apple today announced that the next round of international iPad launches will take place this Friday, July 23rd. All iPad models will be available at launch, with pricing information available through Apple’s country-specific sites and stores.

The Apple iPad will be available in Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore this Friday, July 23. The iPad will be available at the breakthrough price of just Euro 499.

The company notes that the iPad will be made available in “many more” countries later this year, with launch dates and pricing being announced close to those launches.

Apple first launched Wi-Fi-only iPad models in the United States in early April, with 3G-capable models following later that month.

Apple’s iPad is a revolutionary device for browsing the web, reading and sending email, enjoying photos, watching videos, playing games, reading e-books, and much more. Its high-resolution Multi-Touch display lets you interact with content — including 12 innovative new apps designed especially for iPad and almost all of the 140,000 apps available on the App Store. At just 0.5 inches thick and 1.5 pounds, iPad is thinner and lighter than any laptop or notebook. iPad will be available at the breakthrough price of just Euro 499.

The first round of international iPad launches, encompassing nine countries, occurred in late May and today’s announcement marks the second round of such international launches.
