    What Time did US Pre-orders begin

    Hi,

    With UK pre-orders set for Monday 10th May (about time) I was wondering at what time US buyers were able to place pre-orders at the time of the original US iPad launch? I'm assuming that at 1 minute past midnight it did not suddenly appear on the Apple website? ( I realize that the US covers several time zones). Also, with the presumably huge number of people placing pre-orders on the same day, how did the website cope?

    Cheers, Greg

    Yes, but it feels good, when you imagine to be amongst the first who preordered their's.
    Most likely written on my iPad
