Does anyone know if an IPAD purchased in the US will be covered for warranty by Apple UK?

Thanks,

Well your 3G ipads in the US I've heard are delayed too. For the same reasons as the international ones are delayed. So best learn to like waiting.
And laughing at the misfortune of others is a very un mac-forum user like thing to do. And it shows the kind of person you are.

At least we have a date we can pre-order now.

We will announce international pricing and begin taking online pre-orders on Monday, May 10.
Mind you end of April to 10th of May is not really a month. A week or 2 at best delayed. Cause I always thought end of april was the pre-order date and not release date. So it's not as bad as people think. But it was very nice of Apple to make a statement about this to let us know.

At least there is one good thing for us non US people. We cam make sure the Wi-Fi and overheating issues are all sorted out before we get our ipads.

I guess it goes to show, that like any company, if demand is high they they are forced to delay a release to other markets.

Could be worse, the iPad could have been a flop, and I am sure none of us wants that

I think tdll1313 was being sarcastic....maybe we shouldn't be so quick to jump to conclusions.

By the way, do you have a link to the story about the 3G pads being delayed?

No link. So it seems either what I heard is wrong or Apple have not yet commented on the situation. I'm sure it's more likely the latter. And Apple do want their US customers happy and well ipad fed. And I don't blame them. Releasing a product then having it unable to buy is pretty bad. So the more crowds in the US that buy ipads in the US means more delays for the rest of the world.

But on the upside Apple's share value will just go up and up too .

And to answer your question, no link yet. So take it with a grain of salt till some official word about this pops up.

And there is a right and a wrong time for sarcasm if indeed that was sarcasm.

WOW, had I known the Thought Police would be after me for my playful comment that ended with a smile face, I would have been more careful. The ability to derive "the kind of person I am" with nothing more than your incorrect interpretation of a single post is truly remarkable....So in review, A) traylorc was correct, and B) be careful what you say around the8thark, his ability to misconstrue your words and come to a conclusion about your entire personality and place a value on it, is spooky!

Thanks for your insight. It seems we both know each other very well now and can read eath others thoughts. That is nice to know
And your statement shows your ability to misconstrue words too. Seems we both share that skill in common. Also nice to know .
What you said did sound a little harsh mind you. But it's ok. We were both harsh to each other.

Demand is either too high, or they don't want to put too many quirky products into customers hands.

Apart from reports of difficulty in connecting over Wi-fi, I am not aware of 'issues'.

However, not sure it's purely a 'demand' problem.

Doesn't bother me that much, as like most Canadians I can easily travel over the border and bring one home with me. A bit disappointing however.

Based on activity in another forum I'm on, I can say with some confidence that at least a part of that "surprising US demand" is *already* coming from Canadians buying theirs just over the border.

Plus all the people who flew over to the US to get oneplus the companies in places liek the UK and Hong Kong who got some jsut to re-sell at a profit. This we all already know. I'm just saying that US demand is actually a world wide demand . Just most of us do not have the funds to take a ipad buying shopping trip to New York.

Thanks for that Harry. It seems pre-orders 10th May for end of may maybe Sat 29th May release. But I do think 3G and Wi-Fi will be released at the same time here.

Apple just can't push back the international release date too far. because they need the initial US rush and ipad fever to be at least partially existant so that feeling can filter over to the other countries when we have our release date. If the ipad has lost it's new product shiny and is just something everybody "just needs to have" then it'll be much harder in the other countries to get the crowds enthaused in the product and do all those store lineups as I'm sure Apple love so much.
