Responding to a Swiss fan who emailed accusing Jobs of "deliberately pulling the wool over the rest of the worlds eyes" about the international iPad delay, Jobs used some fruity language in reply.


He went on in his email, saying "We need enough units to have a responsible and great launch," which is in line with the official reason for the delay—lack of units, due to the "high demand" from the US launch, which saw 500,000 of them fly off the shelves.

There's plenty of pissed off people in Europe at the moment, irritated that what was going to be a delayed launch anyway has turned into a super-delayed roll-out. Plus, the longer Apple waits in bringing it overseas, the closer it gets to the iPhone launch in June, which could see sales affected for both products. [Shadwell via 9to5Mac]
