I've decided to sell my iPhone 4 to buy one...I'm gonna go for the 32GB Wi-Fi white model.

Does anyone think they will sell out like the iPhone 4 did or will the demand not be as high?

Defo getting one, but think supply will sell out as usual

think demand will be high, if not higher than previous ipad demand.

What phone are you getting to replace the ip4?

I'm going to get one

nope, because im not a consumer or fall for stupid advertising hype

Im sticking with mine (ipad). Lack of Retina display and rubbish cameras have put me right off... Wont be trading unless there are enough significant changes... High speed, dual core blah blah blah doesnt bother me at all.

I bet all you geeks have got mac's

I've never had an apple product before but this looks really tempting, I just don't know what coulour to get, black or white?

I wish i was like Rebecca Black and could just make a quick decision. I mean, she took the back seat but it only took her a few seconds to decide. (even though the two seats at the front were already taken??)

MacBook pro and iMac... problem?


I'll pick one up from New York when I go in June. Works out cheaper so.

So why are people getting these ipads? Whats special about them?

It's an acquired taste.

If that £10 nokia has bluetooth, then at least I'll be able to send pics to you now

I have iPhone and Imac and I want an iPad. Will be upgrading to the née iPhone when it comes out this summer.

I was looking at the advent vega but unsure.

I recently bought the iPad 1 and I haven't found any occasion where I have thought "this is too slow and heavy". I would consider how much the upgrades effect you and maybe look at old version.

demand will be high,there are still massive queues in the US stores and 4-6 week shipping times,it took me about a month to get my paws on the ipad 1 when it was releases.

probably going to queue from early morning at an Apple store to guarantee getting one this friday,rather than waiting ages

Advent Vega is junk compared with ipad - infact no other touch screen device responds as well as the iphone & ipad. Ive tryed most but yes it is just my opinion.

For me the ipad represents the best comic reader ever - the ipad 2 brings a much needed weight drop as holding up version 1 while chilling in bed does bring about some wrist ache (and not in a dodgy way)!

I was looking forward to get ipad 2 but stock was already short and will only get worse with the Japan disaster - and with that event in mind it kinda makes me realise that getting hyped about gadgets is madness when people lives have been destroyed.

Yeh I wanna get one. Surely you can just buy them online on friday morning no? Won't retailers like best buy, pc world etc all have stock on release day?

Is the ipad made in japan ? i thought it was china?

Yeah its made in China, but some of the parts are from Japan, in particular the NAND Flash memory

I don't know what to do I want one but I am not sure whether to go and queue, what time will I have to get there ? at the Trafford Centre manchester?

Also, how long until Viking Direct get them?

Pretty sure I saw a big banner on best buy website other day saying ipad 2 coming 25th March. Surely they wouldn't be promoting it if they aren't going to have it in stock from the 25th?

Will it not be easy to order from apple on friday anyway? Or will you need a preoreder? If so how do you get one? I signed up to their mailing list for info but nothing yet.

I'm off work so I can sit at home bashing F5 in the morn but don't really wanna trek to a store lol

When I got my iphone 4 from st davids in cardiff i was down there for about 6am maybe a bit earlier and there was already about 100 people there...it's crazy lol

I'll be getting a White one but I'm in no rush, I've signed up to their mailing list on the Apple store and I'll await them confirming stock.

Better of getting it abroad. No 20% vat to pay, so automatic discount.

complete bullsh1t.

source: I actually called up an apple store in US.

Also $500+6% sales tax = $530 = £340 (crappy bank rate) + £40 delivery = £380

UK Ipad 2 price = £399

You save £19

Not worth the hassle

I got mine on launch day from Austin, TX. I love it. Got the green smart cover too.

And oh, I brought it back to Scotland. Works fine. No warranty support here until the official launch on Friday, and then I will have support from then. (can hardly go into an apple shop right now with issues when they don't even have the product). I don't have any issues with it though.

Gps works just as it did in the USA.

The smart cover looks a bit rubbish imo.
There is no back coverage, but most importantly I like my iPad to stand up at various angles depending on where I am and the angles on the smart cover are limited plus it won't stay upright on my bed judging on the ipad1 case with the same angle. I want a case with a solid back, if that makes sense. Any idea on good ipad2 ones (not that i'll be lucky enough to get one lol)

Do you still get the checkerboard effect when using safari on the iPad 2?
