Later today the iPad 2 will become available in the United Kingdom, many of you thought it would be easy to get your hands on Apple’s second generation tablet, however there will be a lot of luck involved as many retailers will sell the iPad 2 on a first-come fist-served basis.
PC World and Comet will not allow you to reserve your iPad 2, in fact there is no way to buy the iPad 2 on either website (pcworld.co.uk or comet.co.uk), all you can do is use the site to find your local store which will begin selling the iPad 2 from 5pm today.
Most of us live nearby to a large retailer who will be selling the iPad 2, however a lot of us do not, therefore there will undoubtedly be a lot of let-down people who traveled a long distance to get their iPad 2 only to find that they were sold out by the time they get there.
Lots of people were hoping to buy their iPad 2 today as ordering online may result in a long 4 week wait for delivery, however we have a feeling that people are going to be disappointed by stock levels as we have already heard rumors suggesting that some stores will be getting no iPad 2s whatsoever, which suggests there may be a shortage of stock.
We would love to hear from you if you are having problems getting hold of the iPad 2, let us know your stories in the comments section below.
