Thanks for Desire at ITProPortal its come to our attention that for the few of you living in the UK, who want and iPad RIGHT NOW,and just cannot wait another 3 weeks now have an option to purchase the iPad and be one of the first in the UK, prior to the rumored release date of the 24th of April
No, this does not require flying to the USA, simply some online shopping will do, if you are willing to pay the pre-release premium…
If you’re itching to get your mitts on an iPad, can’t wait till the end of the month for the official product launch and Ebay is not your preferred route, then there are at least two retailers in the UK that are selling Apple’s quasi-legendary device.
Purelygadgets have confirmed to us that they have stocks of the three versions of the iPad currently on sale in the US. Prices range from £700 for the 16GB version to £870 for the 64GB version with the 32GB version for £786 including free next day delivery.
Simply Electronics are also stocking all three versions of the iPad for £540, £630 and £740 respectively with free delivery, prices that are more reasonable compared to Purelygadgets.
Apple has yet to confirm exactly when the iPad will be available in the UK although rumours point to the 24th of April, the only available “normal” weekend before the bank
I will definitely just wait another few weeks until the UK launch as I hope the prices will be closer to the current USA prices, although for some reason IT equipment in the United Kingsom is almost always at least 25% more expensive than in the US
Nonetheless, if one of you do decide to pre-purchase feel free to arange a meetup and let me get my hands on it
