    Anyone know if this insurance scheme is/will be available on this side of the pond?

    No it isn't available here. Not yet at least and there have been no rumours as to when it might become available here.

    Thanks. (Wow, that was prompt!)

    Oh, bother. I suppose I shall have to move to the USA then, but that's very complicated and I might end up getting one of those awful Anglo-American accents. :(

    Ha! Don't worry about the AppleCare+ here. As it stands, Apple are pretty good at repairing iPads that have been damaged and don't charge all that much. If Applecare+ were available here then I doubt I'd take it up anyway. Repairing an iPad doesn't cost too much and if I break it then it's my own fault anyway. I'd rather stick to the standard warranty.

    Your probably much better off going third party. We have 2 MacBooks, an iMac, an iphone and an ipad all insured through our building society for £8 a month. You have to pay the first £40 on any claims though.

    Edit: Plus a HTC desire and maybe a second iPad.

    Good call. Thank you both. (Actually, the thought of the accent had already put me off, but it's good for my rapidly developing Apple obssessive anxiety syndrome to know that I'm not missing anything essential).
