    Welcome to ipad forums :)
    It seems we have many users from all over the globe that I have not had the pleasure to meet so just to let you know we have an International iPad Users forum in Regional iPad Groups just for you.

    As you are aware most of us will not have Apple ipad released until late April or much later

    I ask all of our international members to come to the International forum and let us hear your views and comments and if you do not mind complete the following:

    a) Where you are from : Country, City
    b) Do you own an ipad if so what model
    c) If you are going to buy an ipad if so what model
    d) When do you expect to receive your ipad if you are buying one
    e) Are there any specific concerns you have relative to your country and Apple ipad or Apple in general that we may answer
    f) Do you own a stand alone Apple Macintosh or PC and what type that has itunes on it.
    g) Which itunes store do you use? ( Country )
    h) Finally what would you like this forum to provide to you as an international member

    We are here to assist and answer questions and most importantly help you enjoy the forum.

    Cheers

    Canadian member in Vancouver

    a) Where you are from : Vancouver, BC, Canada

    b) Do you own an ipad if so what model: two 64GB wi-fi units (mine and my wife's).

    c) If you are going to buy an ipad if so what model: Did it!!

    d) When do you expect to receive your ipad if you are buying one: Pre-ordered them in March on the US Apple Store website using my Cdn credit card and a USA parcel drop address just 20 mi (30km) south of Vancouver; I drove down and picked them up on Tuesday, April 6

    e) Are there any specific concerns you have relative to your country and Apple ipad or Apple in general that we may answer? Wondering about the publisher copyright rules for iBooks in Canada -- the App Store app doesn't work yet

    f) Do you own a stand alone Apple Macintosh or PC and what type that has itunes on it? I have an iMac i7 Quad 27" running iTunes 9.1; my wife's iPad connects to her Windows Vista PC running iTunes 9.1 also.

    g) Which itunes store do you use? ( Canada and the USA )

    h) Finally what would you like this forum to provide to you as an international member? Understanding of my challenges sometimes with international marketing and copyright laws.

    Welcome to the forum and many thanks for your detailed response If you need any assistance please ask. If I am unable to answer the questions I will find some whom will.

    The issue of ibooks affects all countries too early to give any real assessment. Most of problems is around copy right.
    Thanks again for responding

    hi everyone,

    - i am from manila, philippines

    -my ipad will be here early next week. wifi only, 16 gb. i had a hard time deciding how much memory i need since up until now i have only used up to 7 gb of my iphone memory. thats already with all the apps i use everyday.

    -we don't have an apple store here so warranty is an issue.

    -i own a mbp 15" mid 2009 and an imac 27" i5.

    -i have a US itunes account.

    -just reading up on what other people are doing with their ipads, the problems they are encountering, the solutions etc.

    a) Where you are from : American living in Manila, the Philippines

    b) Do you own an ipad if so what model: Not yet.

    c) If you are going to buy an ipad if so what model: 64GB WiFi + 3G

    d) When do you expect to receive your ipad if you are buying one: My order just changed status to "Prepared for Shipment" today --- to be shipped to a US forwarder on April 30, who will then rush-ship it to me

    e) Are there any specific concerns you have relative to your country and Apple ipad or Apple in general? Trying to obtain an iPad as an early adopter is a b$%#h as several freight forwarder addresses delivering to the Philippines are now known by Apple --- it's the price to pay as an early overseas adopter, I guess

    f) Do you own a stand alone Apple Macintosh or PC and what type that has itunes on it? iMac and Macbook Pro 17" both running iTunes 9.1.1 (time to update, folks!)

    g) Which itunes store do you use? US store

    h) Finally what would you like this forum to provide to you as an international member? Useful hints and tips; App reviews; workarounds and such
