iPad 2 release..dont bother with online

Seems theirs large waiting times for those that stuck their orders in first thing, delivery times till the end of April...so it looks like all the UK stock has been shipped to stores.
 
Apparently theirs poeple starting to queue at the Apple store here....!?

    Might drop by the local apple retailer in the morning then - I think that might be what drives web/ebay prices so silly, folk not being arsed/able to get to a convenient store.

    Working for Vodafone I thought I might be able to take advantage of this somehow. We have a store onsite so I popped down earlier.
     
    Me:"So, what time do the iPads go on sale?"
    Shop Assistant:"5pm"
    Me:" What time are you closing today?"
    Shop Assistant:"5pm"
    Me:"So can I buy one today?"
    Shop Assistant:"No. We aren't carrying any stock."
     
    Huh??? So if I want one today I have to go and queue up with all the 'muggles'. Not fair!!!

    They'll probably have stock next week but just not today, the day they launch. Brilliant.

    I should have been ahead of the game and bought them over here in the states and sold them to Europe. Will do that for the next one, anyone know what kind of profit who were doing that were making?

    A 32G 3G version is £579 new from the UK Apple store.
    A 32G 3G version is £452 ($729) new from the US Apple store.
     
    On eBay, the most expensive I've seen one sold for is £920. That's not a bad mark-up.

    We ordered one this morning. Delivery is the end of April but I don't mind too much.

    We was never going to go and queue and we have a baby due next week so it'll be here before we know it.

    I also ordered the car headrest holder to keep our 3 year old happy on long journeys.

    Prices looking reasonably stable on the bay - http://completed.shop.eba...Complete=1&guest=1 - though some being paid for over the odds, not as massively as I'd thought. Might still grab one, you get time to return after all

    Various places other than the Apple store will have them right? Probably the best bet is somewhere like PCWorld, not the massive stores, smaller ones a touch more out of the way. On the last release day for iPad 1 i popped in to buy something else, asked if they had any, a sullen "yeah, about 5" was what i heard, but when i rang my brother who had proclaimed how much cash he would be splashing on one and all the official accessories he told me "i want to go in and buy it myself". Best backtrack ever.
     
    Are the likes of Carphone warehouse doing the unconnected/unsubsidised ones too? Orange are doing them, but presumably only on contract?

      I am not playing ! 
     
           When I bought my original iPad I had to settle for what they had , and although I have been happy with it I would have preferred the 3G 32GB version , rather than the 16GB wifi.
     
             Add the two colours into the mix this time and there is huge scope for ending up with the model no-one else wants , rather than the one YOU want. 
     
           Still undecided on whether I need 3G or not , now the iPhone supports hotspot  -  part of me thinks it isn't really needed , the other half worries about battery drainage on the iPhone. 
           ...Whatever ?  ... I am going to try to ignore the launch until the dust settles , and then pick up the model I decide on ,  maybe from a network ?  Probably 3  - I acknowledge their awful CS  ,but I have been using them for my main number since November and not had a problem , and I have to say their network quality and coverage is brilliant recently IME.
     
     

    Lazy is a word used by the obsessed, to describe those with a life.
