The iPad continues to cannibalize Macs

The iPad arrives today in many countries in South America

China is not the only country that will receive the iPad for the first time, today Friday, September 17. On Apple’s Latin American website, the company announced that the iPad will also arrive today in five countries in South America.

The lucky countries that will begin to distribute the iPad today are Argentina, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador and Peru. Unlike in China, customers in these five countries will be able to choose between versions with Wi-Fi and with Wi-Fi + 3G. In China, it seems that Apple has yet to sign the contract with the operator on duty to offer wireless services for the iPad Wi-Fi + 3G, despite the fact that Unicom is in charge of distributing the iPhone.

Those interested can check the availability and price of the iPad in Apple’s Latin American web dealer search engine.
