Not sure, just says on their website that 'over 250' will stock it. Best check with your local!

Just been on the phone to a few stores like an excited lunatic! haha!
Express and Metro's are a no no they said.

Most Tesco Extra's will be stocking them, and to give the store a call.

And also, Tesco HomePlus stores that usually sell iPads will be selling them at 9am, again - the guy said to give your local store a call.

Sweet. I'm hoping to pick one up from John Lewis I think, 2 year warranty is a good extra!

I queued up at an Apple Store for the first iPad and have queued up for every iPhone since 1.0 but after selling the iPad, I skipped getting an iPad 2.

I was tempted to queue tomorrow for this one but I would rather just order from Apple online. Tracking my delivery is fun and we're good to go tomorrow!

I'd still queue for an iPhone and will continue to until I have to, worth it every time.

Was hoping to pre order mine, but dispatch date I'm getting quoted is 29th, so I'll keep an eye on any shops I pass! Hoping I'll get one sooner!

PC World - 12.01am Sales

According to various website, selected DSG stores are opening for sales at 12.01am!

Will camp out on my sofa hoping for a visit from TNT tomorrow with an iPad and an aTV but good luck to all those doing midnight pickups.

I was intending on going to an Apple store around 7am. However yesterday I found out that Comet was taking pre-orders (paid in full) for pick up on Friday, they open at 9am.

When I phoned up my local branch yesterday they had 6 16gb black, I decided I wanted a 32gb black instead, gave them a ring this evening and they had 8 of them.

Comet may be a good bet for those not going to Apple stores / Tescos / Argos etc.

are any of the UK retailers doing pre-ordering online yet?
I've heard word of Argos taking reservations from midnight, although I have no source. You may want to keep an eye on places like PC world and Currys.

Someone tell me why I pre-ordered.
For the Security of knowing that you have one tomorrow?

I was going to pre-order but as I was doing it the delivery times went to the 19th, then 2-3 weeks.

Haha, couldn't remember if I read it elsewhere.
