DSGi exclusive iPad deal might mean a long wait for yours
When DSGi denied having any confirmed plans to sell the iPad in the UK, we didn't believe them - we'd heard from a couple of sources close to the company that their PC World and Currys stores had an exclusive 60 day window to sell them. Some of the details were confirmed by a screenshot of DSGi's intranet that appeared on Mac Rumours a couple of days ago:
Today we received a full list of all the DSGi stores that will be stocking the iPad from next Friday, which you can download here [PDF]. A quick look will tells us that not all stores will be stocking the iPad - this is important, because we're also told that stores not stocking it are not allowed to take orders for them.
In other words, if your local PC World or Currys isn't stocking them, and you don't have a local Apple store, you'll have to order your iPad online - and that currently means waiting until after 7 June.
