    What time does Meadowhall store open on March 25th

    Hi,

    1st post, so excuse the probably dumb newbie questions :).

    I'm planning to head to Meadowhall on March 25th to get an iPad 2 - Wi-fi only, 32Gb.

    What time does the store open that day? Any advice as to what time to get there (long before opening time, just before etc.) Any chance the store will sell out of the model I'm after, or should they have plenty of stock (don't think the one I'm after is one of the "hot sellers")?

    Thanks in advance for any advice!

    Me and the missus are going to have wonder over, it's my 30th birthday on the 25th so she is treating me to an iPad.

    Gotta drop the kids off at school first, so probably be about 10am before I get there.

    Anyone know what time it opens?

    I'll be there....
    This will be the first launch i have ever attended at an Apple store.
    I bought all my iPhones from my local o2 store on launch day.

    Does anyone know what T-mobiles 3g service is like at meadowhall or if you can get Bt Openzone/Btfon as i'll probably bring my MBP and Mifi.

    I'm getting my iPad from Meadowhall: 64gb, 3G, black. But, I won't be able to get there before 5:30. Do you think there will be any left at 5:30?

    If not, then I'll have to ask one of my friends to get one (they're going in a group) at 11:00. But, I would like it to be registered in my name, on my credit card and I can't afford to go a day without my credit card (it's not that I don't trust them :rolleyes:).

    I plan to be there!
    Apple store still telling me usual opening hours of 10am, but there are rumors it could follow US and be 5pm?!
    If 10am I plan to be there around 4-5am!! Sat upstairs near exit doors close to Apple store.
    If 5pm opening time will still be an early start I reckon!
    I plan to get white 32gb wi-fi.

    Who knows !
    Nobody knows what stock allocation is going to be !
    I would imagine that the Apple store will have the largest stock, but it'll also have the biggest que !
    I would try reserve one for collection at your nearest Argos store.

    I was planning to get there Friday AM around 9 am (assuming they open at 10).

    I've been reading a few rumours that Apple are forcing all stores to wait until 5pm. I don't fancy queuing at 5pm, the lines will be massive.

    Did anyone see the Meadow Hall queue for the first iPad? The wife informs me this was longgg.

    ***Update. T3 mag states Apple have confirmed in an official press release the in store time will be 17:00 hrs.

    Me and 2 of my friends will be at the Meadowhall store.
    Was initially considering an overnight queue up as we thought it might open early at say 8am, but since it's now a 5pm launch I think we will just get there around 8am.

    I'll be sat in the queue passing time with my iPad 1, lol.

    Doubt if that is too late, can't see the queue being too big at that time.
