Receive a tweet earlier about iPad's availability here in the Philippines that is why i woke up readily and look for an official statement before posting this one. Sadly, I wasn't able to find one but what I found instead was a repost of Digital Hub's facebook page about the article. They even made a comment "Excited for the iPad 2?" and since Digital Hub is an authorized reseller of apple products, this makes this "rumor" very close to official if not.
The iPad 2 will be officially made available on select branches of official Apple Premium Resellers which include (Digital Hub, Power Mac, Switch, iStudio and The A-Shop)
