And just like always, no sign of the new iPad in Brazil any time soon...


You can blame Brazilian trade laws for that one.

There's a reason why Apple is trying to produce the iPhone 4S there, and that's because Brazil wants so much of a cut on imported stuff they drive the prices skyward.

Hmmm. Tempting to sell my iPad 2 now, and buy a new iPad tomorrow. Unfortunately that would requires:

a) the potential iPad 2 buyer to be a complete idiot (or living under a rock), and not realise the iPad 2 is going to drop in price.
2) having no iPad at all for several hours. Hours!!

Tough call.. :p

I thought there was a huge financial crisis in Greece??? Since when jobless-pennyless people afford electronic gizmos for 500-600 Euros? :rolleyes:


Germany is paying for their iPads.

Are you sure you didn't mean days? :)
I sold my iPad 2 weeks before it was announced!
So... for 10 months and 2 weeks i rented iPad 2 for £70 (the money i did not get back. Sold for £330) :)
So i had to ad another £220 but got 64GB instead of just 16GB
And sure i can wait for days or even a weeks as long as i get most of my money back :)

Anyway.... good luck

Just got mine in Wellington NZ. Love it! I think I'm over heating from the excitement. Where's the media when you need them?

True that here in Austria as well.
And I emailed several stores around here today, none actually is gonna sell the model I want tomorrow (iPad 16GB black WiFi). :rolleyes:
It's even kinda funny: some of those stores told me that they are only gonna get up to 5 iPads, not even one of each version :rolleyes::D
