Anyone got their iPad 2 yet?

I haven't Cry

Ordered at silly-o-clock when Apple started taking online orders here in UK (March 25th) and the latest shipping (not delivery) date I have is 15th April.

Very disappointed Sad

Tells you everything you need to know about the product category that tablets in general and iPads in particular fit into Wink

Devoted collectors of paraphanalia queue round the block,

They battle and bitsch, for the ultimate kitsch, of a crucifix clock,

Two miniature Romans, running on rails, 

Appear on the hour to bang in the nails,

Oh I've got to have one, I've got to be,

The first on my block...

Apple Store online still showing 2-3 week wait for all models

Had to order online, as it's being engraved as a present. :love:

Oh well, i'll continue to be patient (drums fingers, grits teeth...)

Wouldn't it be better to engrave something less ephemeral? (Like a wrist-watch.)

In a year's time - when iPad 3 is launched - the engraving will only reduce the amount one could sell it for.

Even if the recipient never sells it, it will become unusable when the battery degrades (or Apple eventually remove support for that version).

RE: MP3/MP4

Still trying to convince myself that I really, really need one. Then again, maybe someone will buy me one for my birthday in May!  Tongue out

Well the recipient is me, and the iPad 2 is a generous gift from him-indoors, whom wants to engrave something he knows i'll enjoy everyday.

As indeed he did with the iPod Touch that i'm still using three years on.

But if you want to pour cold water over his romantic gestures, go ahead Tongue out

If you don't want it engraved, you can reserve one on Apple website at 9:00 pm for collection the next at one of the Apple stores. They have limited number though so you have to be quick. Reserved mine last night and picked it up lunch time today.

RE: MP3/MP4

That makes me think, my 1st Gen iPod Touch might fetch a handsome sum from those in the academia...

Couldn't he just laser-etch it with those eyes of his?

RE: MP3/MP4

Oooh, update: probably just a co-incidence, but a day after I grumble EVERYWHERE about Apple's shocking service, suddenly I find out my iPad 2 has been sent. It's on its way from Holland, so here's hoping Customs don't hold it up...
