Release of the iPad 2 delayed for Japan, Fallout From Earthquakes, Tsunami

Apple Inc. (AAPL) is delaying the release of the iPad 2 tablet computer in Japan in the aftermath of earthquakes and a tsunami in the Asian country.

The company had planned to release the computer in Japan on March 25. It hasn’t set a new date, Natalie Kerris, a spokeswoman for Cupertino, California-based Apple, said today in a telephone interview. The company also has closed a retail store in the quake-damaged city of Sendai.
