Apple treats UK customers with disdain. I think people in the UK should boycott their 'style over substance' products and go with other companies, who at least make UK a priority, unlike Apple.

Just be patient it will arrive in good time. Regardless of stock issues It takes time to set up telco in countries other than USA and also the distribution network etc Further more devices such as ipads have to be approved by each country before they can be sold in that country. With ibooks arrangements have to be made with book companies in each country and deal with copy right issues etc. It will be world wide release for late May and May 10th for orders colin in Australia

I agree well put
Frankly having a delay is sometimes good as Apple may make a revision to sort out any bugs that may be there such as wifi That has happened before when they released. the Mac pros. Changes were made although small to those shipped to Australia

Lets face it manufacturing some 1 to 2 million ipads to satisfy a world market is a major project in it's own

Couldn't say it better. And they will ship a few million devices more. It is still a young market and once people have understood, what the iPad can do, it will skyrocket.

The US makes up for a greater share of Apples revenue than the UK. Any company will give its top customer priority.

The iPad fan is put there by the board, just as you are a ipad junkie.

On the original subject, I suspect it was tongue in cheek, but I also think that there are people in other countries that would like that if it meant they could get theirs earlier.:)
