    Has anyone out there got any intel as to when the next batch of iPads are due in the country?

    Everywhere is out of the 32GB and 64GB WiFi models!

    Ouch, that's quite a mark up Ebuyer have added to the 64GB 4G model!

    Try Argos. It was the only place that had them in Manchester and I managed to reserve one of the last Three and got it!!

    Wow, I didn't even look at the price - I just pasted the link because I knew they had stock since I'd bought a 16GB Black wifi for RRP the other day. Didn't realise they'd started adding markups!

    No problems

    I know Stormfront, apple reseller, are taking pre-orders as well for £100 refundable deposit. However, they have no idea when they'll be receiving stock.

    There's a handful of these stores around the UK.

    I've been looking at that ipad-stock.co.uk for a while and it doesn't change.

    Depending on where you live, reserving one at 9pm from your local Apple store online is your best chance of a 32gb or 64gb wif-fi currently.

    Cheers Paul.

    It does update, been watching it all week. However, when it does, stockists only tend to have a couple and they go as quick as they come in. You can check when it's come in and gone out of stock as well.

    Thanks MrsiMac. Only looking for the WiFi model. I'm fairly sure they only do the 3G Models.

    Yes, all the carriers only stock the 4G/Wifi variants with contracts.

    If you do get a 4G, definitely get the Giffgaff IPad sim card. It's £5 a month for unlimited data.

    Can't see the £5 a month unlimited data offer - is it a special? Can you post a link?

    Thanks

    I've been looking for a 32g wifi black for a week or so now, none around at the moment in the uk

    I'm not paying over the odds for one, I will just have to sit it out until I can pick one up...

    Stock levels are still abysmal. Especially if you're wanting the white one. :(
