    I was hitting refresh since 1 am and the site finally updated 10 minutes later.

    To my dismay it's already a 2 - 3 week wait for the iPad 2. Leaving the warehouse on April 15th and receiving it on April 22. That's almost a month wait.

    I still ordered one online but I think I'm going to try and get my hands on it at London Drugs today.

    So sorry to hear that col.bris!! I'm off to the Apple Store in Aberdeen today. If the line is too long, then it's coffee at Starbucks and straight home...

    Asking again.
    How come they don't ask who your carrier is? Doesn't that matter?

    Hi guys! I went to my local store yesterday and this guy said that last year, they didn't even have a line up for the first iPad. People just walked in casually. They didn't sell out until the next day.

    There's not a lot of inquiries in this store. I'll go there in the morning to see if there's a line up already. If not, I'll head to the office and then check the store again at 1.

    Good luck to us all! :)

    You don't have to choose a carrier. All iPads are unlocked. You can use any SIM from any carrier in Canada.

    Interesting.
    How come in the US you have to stipulate whether it is Verizon or AT&T? They use different systems.
    For Canada you can use anyone? I would love to know how that works. I believe that Rogers and Bell use different systems. eg GPRS vs CDMA

    All carries use the same technology in Canada

    While AT&T and Verizon use different ones
