    I couldnt answer for you matey, I will be using mine in bed and laying on the sofa, and will be taking it to work too for some assessments i will be able to fill in on it. I may have been able to do it on the netbook i just sold to fund the iPad but then that was slow and getting on.

    Don't know about "keeping up with the jones" ....

    The phones dont, the website lets you think that till it goes wrong, I had one and they wouldnt touch it in the UK.

    Should be ok on the taxes as i have made an arrangement with the seller. but we will see i am prepared to pay a little.

    Don't worry, your Sony won't become obsolete for a few years. There's a very real danger 3D TVs could become obsolete before yours.

    People who have purchased an iPad (some how) who live in the UK will not be able to use Apple App store for the iPad.

    This is official and all UK residents with an iPad are blocked:

    tbh the ipad is just a gimmick

    waste of money imo would rather buy plane tickets to japan again

    got an iphone does the same stuff as an ipad, and my laptop does more than an ipad

    wow you gonna get a big import bill on a £620 purchase.

    there are plenty of ipads on ebay now, starting at 499 collected from london for a 16gb, saves on any importing tax

    [COLOR="Red"]I've already got one.

    Don't know what it does and I haven't used it yet. It's still in its box.

    I'll probably have a look at it when I get some spare time, maybe in a few weeks.

    If it's no good I'll probably just throw it in the bin.[/COLOR]

    Bloody hell. Dick Turpin's alive and well.

    Unless your seller has marked it as a 'gift' and a low value like $15, you could get major burned on the import taxes.

    I've been charged £30-£40 before for items well under £100.

    Seems Apple could sell anything to it's loyal followers.

    Old technology and broken wi-fi for only £499!
    Amazing what advertising can do sometimes

    have fun with the Wireless reception on it

    I would have thought that it is going to be easily identifiable as an apple product and customs are going to be on the lookout for these and know exactly what to look for. Seems a big gamble IMO.

    Easy enough to get around, and it wont be for long anyway.. :thumbsup:
    Apple still requires you to have access to a US credit card with a US address to buy apps. A UK card just won't work.

    Our advice, is for those importing iPads to only do so knowing that they won't be getting the full experience, unless they have an American friend willing to foot the bill for their app downloads.

    Hows that? he hasnt put all his spare Ipad stickers on... Customs will look at what the delivery company give them (declarations) as he hasnt filled in a form to say it is worth more that $30.

    In regards to the app store, wont matter once it is jailbroken.

    and to the person that paid 30-40 quid on a £100 item i am shocked are you sure the delivery man was not robbing you blind? cash only payment was it?

    It has found a gap in the market and created a new and different way to go n the wep, read e-books, take your own films on planes etc.

    same withWe had all the iphone too. It is really only people that cant afford it that moan...

    Surfing the net round the house, watching films on whilst at work/traveling if no decent films on the plane, having a nice sized device to surf the web whilst out and about, in other countries.

    Cool app's and the hope that it will be jail broken so i have a wicked new toy to play with

    Failing it being all those things i can just sell it on Ebay for more than i paid for it. (not likely)

    Oh so you read it realised it was only talking about 2% of god knows how many units and posted anyway? but now you dont care.... very IR like that picture.

    I think it has found a gap in the market. and i should think the sales of it over in the Us and here+ the rest of the world would suggest that too.

    Shall we come back in 6 months for you to post another "IR" picture explaining that for us, Or will you then just start repeating "fanboi" at the people that have brought them ?
