    Hi!
    a) Where you are from : Country, City
    Sweden, Stockholm

    b) Do you own an ipad if so what model
    I placed an order for a 64gb 3G/wifi from US via a friend that should ship 7th of may and arrive here a few days after :)

    c) If you are going to buy an ipad if so what model
    see B

    d) When do you expect to receive your ipad if you are buying one
    See B

    e) Are there any specific concerns you have relative to your country and Apple ipad or Apple in general that we may answer
    No not really. I have been reading the forums and following news. I do have the Iphoneand i know we have a great 3G network here compared to ATT ;) So I am just worried about the shipment and posible problems like DOA. Those would be hard to handle within the 2week return time.

    f) Do you own a stand alone Apple Macintosh or PC and what type that has itunes on it.
    iMac, iBook, Compaq mini.

    g) Which itunes store do you use? ( Country )
    Swedish but i'll use the us one with Giftcards for Movies and Series and some iBooks.

    h) Finally what would you like this forum to provide to you as an international member

    Vancouver, Canada

    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
    Pre-order for 64GB 3G model

    d) When do you expect to receive your ipad if you are buying one
    Shipping June 7, arriving... who knows!?

    e) Are there any specific concerns you have relative to your country and Apple ipad or Apple in general that we may answer
    Hmmm... don't think so.

    f) Do you own a stand alone Apple Macintosh or PC and what type that has itunes on it.
    Many PCs (Dell, Acer, Gateway, Asus), no Macs ... yet. Most of the PCs have iTunes installed.

    g) Which itunes store do you use? ( Country )
    Canada. Occasionally US when software isn't available through the local store.

    h) Finally what would you like this forum to provide to you as an international member
    Don't know if you folks can do this, but it would be great to somewhere have an "iPad Traveller's" database. This would be a quick reference for all things iPad that travellers would want to know. For each country it might include...
    - Which Carriers support the iPad? Where are their web sites?
    - How do you get a microSIM from them? Can you get it in advance of a trip, or are they only available in-country?
    - What data plans are offered? Do you need a local credit card to purchase?
    - Do you have to take out your pad when checking in at the airport, like you do with a laptop?
    - Are there any special iPad considerations for that country (e.g., they were temporarily banned in Israel ... would have been nice to know this during that period had I been traveling there)?

    I live near Lisbon, Portugal, Apple user since 1979! Currently use 13" G3 Powerbook, 15" G4 Powerbook, 20" iMac, 2Gb ram, 500Gb hd, 8Gb iPod Touch and Acer Aspire One (Linux cos Mr Jobs wont make a netbook) I wonder if the rumours of a 11.6" MBA will come true then I can get rid of the AAO.
    Currently using latest iTunes on main machines.
    Hoping to get 32Gb wifi iPad when I go to London at end of month

    Not Yet

    32GB Wifi and 16GB Wifi for Dad

    d) When do you expect to receive your ipad if you are buying one
    Before end July 2010

    e) Are there any specific concerns you have relative to your country and Apple ipad or Apple in general that we may answer
    Our problem locally is all official Apple products that get released is US price + 45%
    Our support locally is almost non existent and you rather take the risk importing without warranty.


    f) Do you own a stand alone Apple Macintosh or PC and what type that has itunes on it.
    This will be my first Apple product.

    g) Which itunes store do you use? ( Country )
    US, cannot use my CC from South Africa as Apple don't accept them so have to buy vouchers online.

    a) Where I am from : Malaysia's very own Kuala Lumpur.

    b) Do I own an iPad? : No, but I will be soon.

    c) If I am going to buy an iPad : Already ordered- Black 64GB Wi-Fi+3G iPad 2.

    d) When do I expect to receive your iPad : Ships by 13/6/11, Delivers by 16/6/11. Of course I'll hope to get it sooner.

    e) Specific concerns I have relative to my country and Apple iPad or Apple in general : Malaysian iTunes is only App Store, no paid e-books available. NO APPLE STORES. Only stupid resellers.

    f) Do I own a stand-alone Apple Macintosh or PC? : Yes, a Sony VAIO FW-35G and an Acer Aspire 6920G; both running iTunes 10.2.2 on Windows 7 Ultimate.

    g) Which iTunes store do I use? : Main account is with iTunes USA, several secondary ones with iTunes Malaysia.

    h) What would I like this forum to provide to myself as an international member: More localized networking- a section for Malaysians. That's all I can think of for now.

    i) Side notes: It amuses me to see people rant online about the suckiness of US carriers (AT&T & Verizon comes to mind), it doesn't apply to me since I live in Malaysia- A country whose all three major carriers offer unlimited data from as low as $20 monthly, without any contract. Which is why it amuses me so much.

    We are starting some country-specific forums - we currently have French, Spanish and Australian. More to follow! We have unlimited 3G data plans in the UK too!

    ...What do you mean? Oh, 'cause of the unlimited 3G thing? Oh, I'm paying dearly for that. Not in bills but lifestyle. Malaysians don't get Apple Retail Stores, only Resellers. And we get things like the iPad and iPhone MONTHS after they launched in the US. And when we try to buy something from US (Beats by Dre Studio headphones come to mind), we have to brave eBay and go through items to find authentic ones. And when things DO get here, they're HORRIBLY overpriced. Example: Beats Studios cost around $300 in the US but $550 here in Malaysia. So yeah, I don't get why you want to be an Int'l Member. Except maybe prices of living are cheaper. (Sort of-ish.)
