    Apple must have a lot of stock of the old iPad remaining in the UK because they've reduced the price by at least £100 on all models.

    16GB WiFi model is £329.

    Remember we've got two more weeks to wait than the US so they may as well ship as much as they can at a lower price now. Which is handy as we're considering them for work :D

    Just noticed this too - from £439 to £329.

    The iPad 2 isn't on the UK store yet, and on the iPad page it just has a button to notify you when it will be available, so it doesn't look like a March 11th release here in the UK.

    Just noticed that. It's down to £258 in my location (bangkok). That's so cheap. Still gonna hangout for the iPad2.

    Must be misprice surely in the UK store. They aren't reducing the price elsewhere. I reckon they will be fixing this shortly. :)

    16GB Wifi down to $419 Canadian dollars (down from $549). Other models down accordingly. And we likely won't be getting the iPad2 until March 25.

    Wow, that is quite a bargain for someone that doesn't care about the new features! [​IMG]

    When you click select on UK store it shows £439? can anyone else from UK try this and confirm it.

    EDIT: once you continue and go to checkout it is indeed £329!

    As the UK has seen a much bigger reduction I'm hoping that might mean the iPad 2 will be cheaper when it's released.

    The exchange rate is a bit more favourable than it was when the first iPad was released so maybe £399 for the new model? Wishful thinking possibly. Maybe they just have loads of stock to get rid of!

    looks like the 16GB is back up at £439 but the 32GB is still £399, a database error most likely.

    this is what I'm seeing at the moment.

    Considering the iPad 1 is the best tablet currently available on the market, this is a real steal.

    Thats odd my home page is also showing iPad starts from £399 which is the 32GB model.

    I think Apple Inc. is gonna have some fun with us today.

    EDIT: back to £329 for me again.

    Not announced yet. Fingers crossed they lower it.

    Exchange rate when the original was released was around 1.40 to 1.50.

    The rate today is 1.63.

    Surely the refurbed 16GB WiFi has to drop from £ 379 now?

    It's £ 50 dearer than a factory fresh unit!
