The new iPad is coming to 30 additional territories on May 11th and May 12th, Apple announced on its site today. While we already knew that the tablet would become available in Brazil this weekend, it is the first time that the company has confirmed its release schedule in other countries.

Further investigation led MacRumors to discover similar launch plans in other regions. According to the site, here’s Apple’s release schedule for this weekend:

May 11: Argentina, Aruba, Bolivia, Botswana, Brazil, Cambodia, Chile, Costa Rica, Curaçao, Ecuador, French Guiana, Guadeloupe, Jamaica, Kenya, Madagascar, Malta, Martinique, Mauritius, Morocco, Peru, Taiwan, Tunisia, Vietnam
