It seems the official price of 16GB ipad on Apple UK store is £329 now. Still £100 off original price.
But with exchange rate as it is, it would be cheaper to import from the US because the equivalent price in the UK for a 16GB will be around £245 based on the new US pricing of $399. So if you can get shipping from the US for around £40-50, you still save around £40 or so on the UK price of £329.
You may be better off buying on ebay from US sellers.
People are selling used ones on Amazon UK for around £300 now.
Forget rumors, everyone knew the iPad 2 would come out around this time since the first one came out...yearly refresh. No surprise at all.
I don't feel cheated in the least. I didn't want to wait any longer so I bought the original iPad.
I do feel cheated however about the fact that when I had a problem with the volume up/down toggle they wouldn't ship me out a new one unless I purchased their warranty package, Even holding it with a credit card.
Then I felt that was a lousy way to do business.
