Just want to see how many people outside the USA managed to grab an iPad before the official Apple release? Tell us where you are located, and what method did you use to obtain the iPad.

(Edit) For me, Canada, and I got it from a guy who drove to Michigan Apple store from Ontario, paid Cdn $680 for 16 GB.

UK, and it's on it's way NOT !!!!

...due the the Volcanic ash from Iceland, all flights and air space closed, with the odd exception.

Hopefully normal resumption Saturday 7am BST, unless they decide restrictions should be extended.

I would have had mine by next Tuesday 20th the latest, but with 3 days of delays for Fedex and Airlines to catch up with, it ain't gonna happen.

/i'll get it eventually!

Got a launch day ipad sent to me from Florida to Winnipeg (Canada)..
With the recently announced delay, I'm so glad I didn't decide to wait for it to appear in Canadian Apple stores!

Fedexed to me today from California. Will it reach Spain early next week? I called Fedex and was told the delays are mainly in Northern Europe, but we'll have to see.

UK here

Bought a 32GB from a UK online retailer and it arrived a couple of days ago

And I love it to death!

just need a decent case for it but the other good news is that my Tumi Alpha "man bag" makes a perfect iPad bag, fits like a glove

I also got a 3G mifi personal hotspot thing so I wouldn't be needing to wait until the 3G model...

Stopped using my MacBook Air quite so much now!

Cheers
Vin

UAE, Dubai here.

Bought a 32gb iPad on the 10th of April. Got it for around $800. Yeh, I know I am a gadget whore.:p

The first problems is that I cant access the app store on my iPad. Got to download apps from tune first and then sync. The second is that it doesn't have an Arabic keyboard. Hope those problems will get solved once the iPad goes international on late May.

Oh, and I can't find any accessories here. I had to order a hard candy case all the way from US.

UK here. Bought on the 5th avenue store on April 4th. Arrived in NYC on April 3rd but was led to believe that they were all sold out. Read on some website on my iPhone that they still had some so went up there on the Sunday. Been very happy ever since :)

Ireland here.

We don't even have a date yet and I'm very impatient.


Will tide myself over with a 64GB wifi, and then when they release 3G models here (July probably) I'll buy a 64GB Wifi + 3G here, and sell my Wifi only model to a relative ;)

Delighted UK iPad owner here, it was a semi-impulse purchase in the middle of last week when I just couldn't stand it any more.

Got mine from eBay (UK), from a seller who had a few iPads already in the UK, otherwise I wouldn't have bothered. If I was one of the people who'd ordered from the US and was now waiting for a volcanic cloud of doom to clear before I could get my iPad, I'd be going mental right now.

UK Here

Got mine on Tuesday
Guy at meeting was using one. We got talking obviously !!
Then he told me he'd brought 4 back from the US for friends but one of them now wanted to wait for the 3G model.

15 minutes later I was the proud owner of a "surplus" iPad 64G

Soooooo Cool - Mac Book Pro and iMac are getting dusty now :D

UK and I have to be honest, I laughed a little when they delayed the UK release...honestly, who didn't see that coming?

32gb WiFi (Have MiWi on my jb 3gs so no need for 3g)

Ordered via ebay, arrived last week

Still waiting for BSE to deliver all over shield and I have just about given up finding a nice case (and I leave for Thailand soon so reallyyyy need one)

Saudi Arabia here !

bought mine from Amazon.com, a little overpriced but much cheaper than the Apple stores here in Saudi.

And ipad apps are available in the Saudi App store, though its not officially released here, is it the same with other app stores other than the US?!

Living in Japan. Ordered directly from Apple, but I'm military so I didn't have to do anything fancy except use apobox.com because Apple doesn't ship to FPO/APO

Freiburg, Germany
A very, very satisfied iPad user from Germany!

Hello from Freiburg, Germany!

I have bought my iPad 16 GB WLAN over eBay USA from a guy in Louisville, Kenntucky.
He sent it via USPS express mail to me...

I have tested it now over 14 or 15 hours and I must say:

APPLE, I am very, very satisfied!

WLAN works very good, Safari also, no dead pixels seen, a fine, nice and handy machine, worth every cent I have paid for, and I have now over 150 free iPad and iPhone apps uploaded, also some music and podcasts. 10 GB free at the moment.

And my special tip: BIG BUCK BUNNY HD (!) That HD video runs smoother on the iPad as on my laptop or PC! The iPad has a very clear and bright picture, thanks to the LED background light.

Have much fun with your iPads!
