iPad 2 will make its release date in the UK

Reports of delays are exaggerated

Apple has quashed talk of the iPad 2 facing release delays in the UK due to the tsunami in Japan.

It was initially believed that the tsunami had affected supplies of certain components used in the new device which are manufactured in Japan.

An Apple representative put an end to those rumours saying in a statement to TechRadar: "Everything that is on the website still holds true; the website says 25 March and that's when it'll be."

The iPad 2 has already been a roaring success in the US shifting over 300,000 units on launch day alone. It launched in the US on March the 11th.
