    Just wondering if any of you guys pre ordered from the hong kong online apple store? I managed to pre order one as soon as the pre orders went live at 1pm HK time on the 8th March.

    whats the current status of your order? Mine still says processing but i guess there is no need for apple to ship these out so early seeing as we are so close to china :p

    hoping the status will change soon :D:apple:

    Why don't you guys try reserving on the Apple website for a chance to pickup in-store the next day? You could then cancel your preorder or return it once you get it.

    Anyone know when the 4G will be available in HK?

    They're sold out online. Only way to get one in HK is through their online reservation system for in-store pickup.

    The only ways are:
    - Buy at an "authorized" reseller and pay the premium - They require you to buy additional accessories (that are not made by Apple) to buy an iPad.
    - Request a reservation at the retail store.

    Seriously? They force you to buy accessories?

    I have a friend going there. Can you please outline/ recommend a list of them (Good Resellers/ Dealers) please?
