    Hello,

    Just checked the apple uk site and now it shows the prices of the ipad in dollars. Why?

    We've turned our back on Europe and are now really the 51st state?

    It's the same in Apple's Canadian site. The fine print basically says that they haven't decided on any local currency prices outside the USA yet.

    Then again...

    http://www.apple.com/uk/ipad/pricing/

    It pays to read the large print.

    it is unlike apple to take so long putting the international prices on their website. It is a bit of a piss take really. i want to know the price

    Just replace the dollar symbol with a pound symbol and it should be close. ;)

    You've got to wait 60 days before it goes on sale anyway, just be patient. :)

    They'll wait as long as possible to announce non US prices so they don't get bitten by the exchange rate.
