Apple Inc said it would roll out its newest iPad to 25 more markets this week, including France and the United Kingdom , but did not provide any hard figures for sales so far in the United States.

Thousands of eager customers lined up for the iPad 2 when it went on sale March 11 in the United States at Apple stores, AT&T and Verizon Wireless outlets, as well as Target, Wal-Mart and Best Buy stores.

While Apple has yet to release its highly-anticipated sales figures, Chief Executive Steve Jobs made clear in a statement on Tuesday that the thinner, faster iPad has been heavily in demand.

"We're experiencing amazing demand for iPad 2 in the US, and customers around the world have told us they can't wait to get their hands on it," he said. "We appreciate everyone's patience and we are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone."

The first iPad -- which went on sale a year ago -- sold 300,000 units on the first day, 500,000 in the first week, and crossed the 1 million unit mark in 28 days.

Apple plans to roll out the new iPad on Friday to countries including Australia, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Italy, Mexico, Netherlands, and Spain.

It also said that all models of iPad 2 will be available in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and additional countries in April.

Apple's new iPad went on sale in 25 countries internationally, but the United States is still the cheapest place to buy the latest version of the tablet computer.

Prices in the United States, where the iPad 2 has been on sale since March 11, start at $499 for the most basic model -- with 16 gigabytes of storage and Wi-Fi only connectivity -- while the same model in Denmark costs the equivalent of $702.

Customers lined up in their hundreds outside Apple stores in Europe and Asia, many waiting overnight or longer, to get their hands on an iPad 2 amid fears of shortages.

In Hong Kong, where the iPad 2 will not officially go on sale until next month, enterprising Chinese businessmen were already selling devices bought in the United States for up to HK$ 15,000 ($1,900).

In the United States, sales tax varies from state to state between zero and 13.725 percent, giving a maximum price to the consumer of $567 and an average of $547.

In the euro zone, the basic iPad 2 is selling at 479 euros ($678) in most countries, although it is slightly more expensive in France and cheaper in Luxembourg.

Unusually, it is cheaper in Britain than in continental Europe, selling for 399 pounds ($642).
