    Don't know about you guys but I have decided to order my new iPad online this morning at 5am and then take my chances at the store today. When I places my order it said 2-3 weeks which is a bit scary!! I went for the 32gb 3G in black with the grey smart cover (yes I know I'm boring) let me know whether you have taken the same route and also whether you hear from Apple on shipping. I will hopfully be heading out to Covent Garden this afternoon to try to get my hands on one.... ATB Nick

    Hey uknick, firstly welcome to MacRumors ;)

    Yeah, I'm going to wait and order mine. I'm not rushing in to it. I'll order mine online also, unless I have good reason to pop in to town and buy the iPad2 from the local Bristol store. I'm still wondering if I really need it or not. Still deciding, but temptation is strong! :rolleyes:

    That's the best thing you could've done, because I failed to do so, and now I waiting for my iPad to be shipped on April 20th, here in the US.:mad:

    Come on Will - you know you want one!! Just give into the inevitable....

    I bought the first gen a year ago and never regretted it ( sold it on eBay before the new one was announced :)) it is by far the best gadget I have ever owned and believe me I have tried many! I even had a brief flirtation with a Galaxy Tab over recent weeks - but it only took me a few days before I gave up and stuck it back on eBay! Once you have tasted Apple other fruits taste just bland ;-)

    I can't wait to get the new one particularly for AirPlay with my Apple TV.

    I would be going to Bristol if I wasn't working today. Hope that there might be one with my name on somewhere in London.

    One last small point - can you veleive that Orange block this site on my iPhone because they say it is "adult content" that really annoys me - it wouldn't happen on my 3 SIM used in my iPad!

    Ring orange up and say you want adult content turned off, I think you can do it without speaking to a human also ;)

    No but seriously, it's not just porn they block, they block many other sites under that stupid block.
