    Apple store UK is down. On a Sunday night (11PM)? :confused:

    Could it be an update for iPad 2 pre-orders going live Monday morning?

    U.S. store is still up and running. I'll admit that if the UK gets to pre-order and the U.S. doesn't, I'll be pretty jealous. :p

    They might be changing their pricing structures. I mean, at the moment, they all look ugly and all over the place. £101, £612, £867...

    Even though this is due to the VAT increase, they just look odd in my opinion. I like the round-offs they usually do.

    Not likely mate, but here's to wishful thinking.

    Highly unlikely. No USA pre-orders, no anywhere else. That's just the way it goes.

    Except they don't get it until the 25th anyway so why would you be jealous? Even people in the US don't get to order until the 11th they'd still get it earlier than other countries.

    Wrong. That is notification for placing orders once it is available for shippping, not pre-orders.

    'We’ll notify you when it’s available to buy from an Apple Retail Store or pre-order from the Apple Online Store.'

    As posters said before, the UK is getting preorders. This is no doubt an update for that.

    I just hoped it would have come later. My iPad 2 fund is transferring from PayPal as we speak and online demand probably means I won't get one delivered by launch day. Just hope the Apple store has my model in stock in mid-afternoon.

    Yep, so no doubt I'll wake up to an email from Apple.

    The UK store is back up. Looks like nothing changed.

    But the nav bar seems to come in a bit latter?

    A little strange.

    "I think you're..." :rolleyes:

    The text I posted is from the UK store after your register for notification. Check your facts.

    UK store back up at midnight. No changes nor iPad 2 pre-order. False alarm. :(

    Chances are this was just preparation. I am really holding out that Apple will let you reserve for in-store pickup like they did with iPhone 4.

    We will still get pre orders though imo. :)
