    Awesome!

    Do you know which model you want yet? I'm going for the 32GB WiFi I think after finding I struggled with 16GB on my iPad 1.

    What time are you heading down there?

    I've been leaning towards the 16GB wifi, but I am wondering whether that will be enough memory, my 32GB iPhone 4 is nearly full after all.

    I'm definitely getting the white model though, looks sweet with a navy leather smart cover imo.

    I haven't decided on a time yet, I queued for over 9 hours (from 7am) on the iPhone 4 launch but not at an Apple Store so I haven't got a clue what the turn out is usually like for launches at the Apple Store, especially iPad launches.

    What time you turning up?

    Yeah I thought 16GB would be enough last time around, but whenever I was travelling (even train journeys in the UK) I would find that it just wasn't enough, what with having some music, movies, podcasts, photos and beefy games on it.

    I'm going on two long haul holidays this summer too so going to want the extra storage space for the flights alone!

    Queued for 9 hours from 7am?! Geez. I went down to the Liverpool ONE store for iPhone 4 launch, got there at about 4:30am and was about 25th in the que or something like that. In front of me were a couple of guys who had flown over from Amsterdam for the day just to get an iPhone 4.

    For iPad 2, I'll be heading down there before that I think a) so I definitely get one, and b) as I have to get a train asap that day, so the longer I leave it, the longer I'll have to que up. At the moment I'm thinking around 3am.

    Hopefully going to get there at around 12-1pm, as soon as I hand a university project in (damn deadlines clashing with the iPad release!)

    For those who haven't been following the iPad 2 UK Thread, here are the prices:

    It might be worth at least following iawa's site, as he's updating it as soon as new info comes in :p

    Ha thankfully I don't have any lectures on Friday and my essays are in for Thursday!

    Are you worried at all about the stock levels and chances of getting one? L1 store isn't that big so I don't think they'll get many compared with like the Trafford Centre.
    I am planning to get there around 12 - reckon that will be early enough to be close to the front of the queue?

    Never been to a launch so don't have a clue what to expect.

    Cheers

    I'm probably going to head there around 11 - 12 and see if anyone is there, if there is then I'll queue, if there isn't I'll chill in the Starbucks over the road.

    Just rang them and they don't seem to have a clue about stock etc. Either that or they just don't want to tell.

    I don't have a clue what the turn out for this is going to be like either :/

    Ye I was thinking of just chilling in bucks till a queue begins to form...

    Ye they really aren't helpful at all, I went into the store yesterday to ask about the release etc and the guy had no clue whatsoever - or again, thats what he said...

    Gonna have to wait and see I guess. I will be SO pissed if I leave Liverpool without one though...

    Which models are people going for? I'm (hopefully) getting 16GB wifi in Black.

    Sounds like a plan mate

    I'm wanting to get the 32GB wifi in white and black, white for me and black for a mate who's in uni all day and can't queue.

    I don't particularly want to go home empty handed either :p
