Is anyone on this forums going to go to the Buchannan St store in Glasgow for the launch.


I wonder how the queue will form since you gotta go up a set of stairs maybe the store will sort it out outside with a few tension barriers outside for reservations and people who didnt reserve.

I can't help you re: your enquiries but where's that picture from? It's not from the Buchannan street side is it :confused:? I don't recognise it.

Edit: clicked through to some pics. Recognise it now. It looked different in that pic without the view through the windows :)


p.s. I would love to be in Glasgow for the launch. Absolutely love the place and am keen to return to live there for a while.

I'm hoping to preorder and have it delivered. But if there aren't any preorders, I may consider coming along to the Store.

I will be there! Assuming they release the thing in the UK soon and I don't cave and buy via ebay.

I have been there for iphone launches, they have the queue outside the shop and allow so many people in at a time. Do you think the ipad will be that popular to warrant that though?

Was planning on going in to Glasgow for the launch, but when I called Apple yesterday to pre-order, I was told the only option was shipping, they aren't offering collections from store on the day.

I took the day off work, so I'm a little disappointed now, that I have to wait in for Mr UPS instead of being at the store.

Roll on the 28th.

Was going to walk down and wait at the Buchanan Street store on 28th but will probably leave it a month and pick one up on hols in San Francisco and save a bit of cash in the process.

Just walked past there on my way to work. Had an urge to get my pre-order out of my bag, but resisted... :D

The queue was round the block and some Starbucks employees were helping relieve the iPad wanters of any spare cash...

One question for any 3G purchasers - are they selling SIMs from all vendors (including 3)?

Mate, I'd really love to know what you do for a living to afford all the latest Apple gear on launch day, every single time. :D

Whatever it is, I'm either in the wrong job or I need to become a student again!

Damn you married life. :(

Edit: Loved the iPad connection kit unboxing ... "So much fur being green, eh"!?

Anyone know what the stock situation is going to be like tomorrow? I have to travel about 2 hours to get to Buchanan street so would really like to know if they are going to have any ipads left in stock before leaving! I tried calling but they don't have an option to check stock :-(

I went in today and it was chaotic. It was approx 1pm. Absolutely mobbed. Apple were selling them like if it was sweets lol. No kidding. I bagged the last 16GB 3G model, literally - 3 seconds after the sales guy bagged it, another came to look for it and my sales guy was like "that them out of stock, even in the back room". Unless they get deliveries in on a Saturday, you may be in luck for the 16GB 3G one. Not sure about other models but they were stacked up in piles all around but werent lasting that long either.

In terms of accessories - they had tons and tons of them. Dock connections, keyboard, camera connection kit, bookarc and griffin stands and a few others. Wouldnt worry about the accessories, seemed they had plenty!

I would call in before going, but they aint taking reservations either (so im told).

Wow I didn't think it would be that popular! I'm hoping to either grab a 32gig wifi or 32gig wifi+3g so hopefully they won't be as popular!!

Does anyone know if they are likely to get shipments in overnight as tomorrow is saturday and monday is a bank holiday :( I did try ringing but there wasn't really an option to actually speak to anyone!

Enjoy your iPad!!
