    I guess I'll be getting up early tomorrow to place my order here in the UK.

    I hope they do for the UK. Wonder if the bullring will open up really early in birmingham?

    As posted in other threads, the Australian AppleStore was taking iPad pre-orders at 4:30am if not earlier. The Japan store was taking pre-orders before 4:03am local time, so my prediction is 4am for the UK.

    Seriously guys! Apple are not gonna run out of pre orders 3 weeks in advance.

    Just order when you get up as there is no need to pre order at 5am!

    To put it in perspective with US pre orders you could order for April 3rd delivery up to a few days before when it was basically impossible for the ipads to be shipped before the release date.

    I am sure it will be the same here with us. As long as you pre order by the 22nd (so it has 6 days to reach us) you will get it on the 28th.

    I'm up all night at work until 6am, not a lot to do here, so I guess I get to order right away.

    Cool, did you get any accessories, or just the iPad?

    I'm still debating on pre-ordering it or going into the store in release day and having a play before pulling the trigger on the purchase.

    I'd just hate to go there and find that they're all sold out though.
