  • International iPad Sales Delayed a Month!

    Apple released the following statement today which basically says if you're not in the United States you will have to wait until May to get your iPad.

    Apple Media Advisory

    Apple today released the following statement:

    Although we have delivered more than 500,000 iPads during its first week, demand is far higher than we predicted and will likely continue to exceed our supply over the next several weeks as more people see and touch an iPad™. We have also taken a large number of pre-orders for iPad 3G models for delivery by the end of April.

    Faced with this surprisingly strong US demand, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the international launch of iPad by one month, until the end of May. We will announce international pricing and begin taking online pre-orders on Monday, May 10. We know that many international customers waiting to buy an iPad will be disappointed by this news, but we hope they will be pleased to learn the reason—the iPad is a runaway success in the US thus far.

      The May 10th date is, apparently, the date Apple expects to announce UK pricing and start taking pre-orders.

      I'd like one but still paying off my wedding and a large tax bill - until I've cleared those any purchases are put on hold so I guess I'll be waiting a while!

      I managed to buy mine from eBay and did a cash and collect for 630. Beauty being no VAT or customs shite to deal with... Loving it by the way, unfortunately, a real lack of credible accessories available in Blighty at the moment.

      On top of that, the blinking Ash scenario ain't helping imports!!!!
