But it's only six days later than planned, with other countries to follow later that month.
Apple has announced that its iPad tablet will go on sale in the US on Saturday 3rd April. That's the Wi-Fi-only model - the Wi-Fi + 3G model will go on sale there in late April.
That's a slight delay - the Wi-Fi version was expected to go on sale in late March. When it was unveiled on 27th January, CEO Steve Jobs said it would go on sale in 60 days.
Still, only six days late isn't bad.
Apple has also announced that all iPad models will be available in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK in late April.
However, Apple says it won't launch international pricing for the device until April. iPad will be available in other countries later this year.
US pre-orders for both models will kick off on 12th March from Apple's online store, with customers also able to reserve Wi-Fi models to pick up from an Apple retail store on 3rd April.
"iPad is something completely new,” says CEO Steve Jobs in a statement.
"We’re excited for customers to get their hands on this magical and revolutionary product and connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before."
Apple has confirmed that only the US will get Apple's new iBookstore e-books store as a downloadable app on 3rd April. Other countries will get it "later this year".
