Although it’s not May 28th yet, people who bought an iPad and got it earlier will get the chance to use localized iPad App Stores one week early than the tablet’s launch. However, these users will have to repurchase the apps that they bought using the US iTunes Store and even lose some of the software for good.
We remind you that Apple postponed the international launch of the iPad till May 28th, the date when the first batch of iPads hits the UK. The second wave will be available on June 7th and before this happens you can get the apps you need from the iPad App Store, while the iBooks bookstore is still unavailable internationally.
Meanwhile, grey market iPads will have a problem with the apps purchased from the US iTunes Store via workarounds, as the users will be forced to use their local stores.
