We’re just 3 hours away from the new iPad 3 receiving a midnight launch in selected UK stores, although you’ll be lucky to find a local Apple Store offering the new iPad on the release day from midnight. You can see in the photo above that over 250 Tesco stores will offer the 3rd generation iPad from midnight tonight.
Main features of the new iPad include ultra-fast wireless, a 5-megapixel iSight camera, and the best display on any mobile device thanks to Apple’s Retina technology. Thousands of people preordered right after the recent Apple event, although those that wanted to be one of the first to pick up the new iPad will be at UK stores within the next 3 hours.
We cannot confirm if other UK retailers are selling the new iPad from midnight, although there is a good chance, so if you manage to grab one tonight from a store other than Tesco let us know in the comments.
The moment the clock ticks 00:01 in the next few hours you’ll be able to pick up a new iPad inside Tesco, and we spoke to our local store to check stock, which seemed pretty limited with people already hanging around for the midnight launch.
Apple’s new iPad from the recent event – Apple didn’t stream the new iPad launch event this year, although the keynote video went live on Apple’s official website within hours of the event finishing. Most UK preorders saw shipment notifications around 5 days ago, although it looks like they will deliver on time tomorrow. Let us know if you got yours early?
