Apple's third-generation tablet will launch on 11 and 12 May in Brazil and 29 other countries

Apple will launch its new iPad in 30 additional countries this weekend, including Brazil, Chile, Egypt and Jamaica.

Apple's iPad selection page for Latin America shows that the new iPad will be arriving in 13 new countries on Friday 11 May, which are Argentina, Aruba, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Curacao Ecuador, French Guiana, Guandeloupe, Jamaica, Martinique and Peru.

MacRumors reports that several other countries will also see the launch of the new iPad this weekend.

On 12 May Bahrain, Egypt, Jordan, Kuwait, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates will be able to get their hands on Apple's latest tablet.

Apple has not yet launched the new iPad in Honduras, Indonesia, Micargua, Paraguay and the Philippines, but the iPad 2 is being sold at a lower price in those countries while the company awaits certification to sell its third-generation tablet.

The new iPad is also not yet available to buy in China's mainland due to ongoing iPad trademark lawsuits in the country.

On 5 May, Apple quietly launched the new iPad in Turkey, and, as of 12 May, the new iPad will be available to buy in almost 90 countries.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
