During Apple’s earnings call Tim Cook made it clear that the Apple Watch will be shipping sometime in April. We’ve now learned that the wearable device’s launch won’t be limited to the United States. Apple’s CEO is currently touring Belgium, Germany, the United Kingdom and Israel. He apparently told managers of the flagship Berlin Apple Store that they will be launching the wearable in Germany in April, says 9to5Mac.
“It’s possible that the Apple Watch will launch first in the United States in early April, with Germany and other countries following later in the month, but it definitely appears that the Watch’s rollout will be more aggressive than the first iPhone and iPad launches,” writer Mark Gurman speculated.
An April launch in Australia may also be possible, sources indicate. Rumors also say the company is training retail employees in the country to prepare for Apple Watch sales. In the past both the iPhone and iPad were US exclusives due to getting carrier approval. The Apple Watch, on the other hand, has no cellular capabilities.
Apple is set to unveil the wrist-worn device during its “Spring Forward” event held on March 9 at the Yerba Buena Center of the Arts in San Fransisco.
