    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!

    Haha, that was a fast reply... And God bless localization! :D Ain't unlimited plans amazing? Although I'm not using one. Mine has a 10GB cap but no overages.

    ...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.)
