iPad 2 day approaches .... Who'll be getting one ?

    Strangely , although I want one I am not feeling any sense of urgency ! 
 
        May well get one subsidised on a network  , but whenever will do 
 
      With the iPad 1 , I ended up settling for the 16GB wi-fi ,  my first choice would have been the 32GB Wifi / 3G ,  but I had to settle for what I could get (as it turns out it has been fine )   -  this time around I'd far rather get what I want , rather tan what is left  ,  and that will probably mean not rushing in. 
       Now hotspot capability is on the iPhone,  I am wondering whether it will affect the sale of 3G ipad (or indeed whether I need 3G on the iPad itself ) -  the only reason I think I might is to avoid caning the battery life on the iPad. 
       Stock levels could be very interesting , as with the white version , each retailer would effectively have to stock 12 versions to have "full stock"  !! 
 
       Anyone doing the queuing up thing ?

    LOL , not sure if you saw the looks on my lots faces when the realised I was looking at a piece of gadgetery !
            ,  I found the screen a little quirky myself   -as you saw I kept selecting things when I was trying to scroll !  but build quality and general feel of the hardware was better than I expected   
          Oops !  sorry about the footprint on your microfibre cloth then.  
         Nice to meet you too mate , we all had a great time.
     
        Just because you are happy with one gadget , doesn't mean you can't buy others

    Can't believe how much they're going for on ebay. They were released on 11th in US and I've seen them sold for up to £1500!!

    Now Vodafone are doing them I'll be pre-ordering and getting my big discount.

    People in the US wernt really waiting..they where selling for that price to people in the UK Euro that wanted one early..wernt many sales if any like that held in the US, there will be good stock.
     
    Still on shelves in most places in the US. There was some sort term sell outs in smaller stres but apparently more and more reporting in they restocked a few days later.

    And in other news ...... 
     
         Three have just knocked a further £25 off the upfront cost of the iPad 1 (3G) 
           So that's £75 + £20 per month , for 15GB per month  ( 24 month commitment)  
     
        Pretty cool ! 
                  I remember early on , someone predicted that the biggest threat to Android tabs would not be the iPad 2 ,  but the orignal iPad if it is kept on at a reduced price.  it certainly looks attractive , but whether these kind of prices will remain after the launch of the iPad 2 remains to be seen .

    Ignore - I thought you wrote "they" but it was in fact "three".

    Grrrr


    I would still do it tho...might think about it myself as the UK and certianly NI wont have anywhere near the amount needed..also..if you go to Bay them...include ROI in the sales as well, as they dont get anywhere near enough stock on every Apple release...they travel up teo the Belfast store and are usually at the front of the lines to get one.
     
    Still seems to be a problem with some screens in them at full brightness tho.

    I wonder how many that are sold in the first week are to people actually wanting one to use them and how many are bought purely to sell on?

    Its really a very very small % that do that.
    Compare it to the millions that will be sold over the release weekend.

    Tiny % bought to sell on. Even on tech savvy sites you still hear only of a minority bothering to do it, and for a product like the iPad that's a minority of the purchasers anyway.

    Awesome pic, but Tony you're not doing yourself many favours posting up tips on preventing the gag reflex and then a picture of a guy touching his toes - Ak

    Defintely getting one. We wanted one at Xmas but put it off for a while so now is the time.

    I think were just going to order one on Friday via the apple site and cope with whatever the lead time is.

    I've just got a new job as an IT manager and there's rumours we might be trying them out at work soon!
