    uk Apple store - ealier shipments

    with regard to the current thread about some shipments in the States being shortened, i'm curious if there's anyone in the UK who've ordered from apple.co.uk store and had their shipment dates shortened?

    mine were 15th and 26th respectively from the minute i ordered (about 20 secs after the store opened). Some in the Uk report seeing an early 2-3 week estimation posted, but this is not the case for me. i've never seen these times posted.

    I was in the Apple Store in Aberdeen last week and they had loads of iPad2s on display and quite a lot in stock I was told - though not the model I was after...time to move up to the frozen north....maybe they've mistaken Aberdeen for Anchorage - where all the US ones seem to get shipped through.

    * Apple.com/uk. Apple.co.uk is a different company's website.

    looks like official shipment times have improved from 3-4 weeks to 2-3 weeks. but not in my case.

    i'll be on the phone to apple as soon as trading hours start and report back on those who've ordered earlier :)

    just spoke to Apple. no joy.

    he said there's always been the 3-4 week date right from site launch in the uk on the 25th. never been a first come first serve. apparently supply is now catching up with demand and if shipping times are to change you'll get emailed. but he couldn't comment further.

    i also asked about possible screen defects on the first batches. again, no comment, he'd not heard anything against the contrary on anything.

    so, never mind,. nothings changed.
