    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

    see B

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

    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.

    iMac, iBook, Compaq mini.

    g) Which itunes store do you use? ( Country )

    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

    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.
