iPad-loving UK pushes pre-orders back to June

You, the avid Bitterwallet reader, may have as much use for an iPad as a girl from Donny has for chip pan fat, but UK sales appear to be going through the roof. On Friday, Apple quietly pushed back the pre-order shipping date for iPads to 7 June:

Bitterwallet - Apple iPad pre-order pushed back to 7 june

Anyone who ordered their iPad with the pre-order date of 28 May will still receive it then - everyone else will have to queue up at Apple and DSGi stores to get theirs earlier than 7 June. But that won't be you, will it?

    "may have as much use for an iPad as a girl from Donny has for chip pan fat" Girls from Donny *bathe* in chip pan fat - I don't need an iPad that much. Perhaps it should have read "may have as much use for an iPad as a girl from Donny has for soap".

    No, it won't be me, because mine will arrive on the 28th!!! Cannot wait.

    *shrugs* If you can blow £600+ on something useless then I'd dare say they can wait. In the meantime, they can continue to have many large dumps and wipe their arses with their remaining fortune.

    I guess waiting just over a week is just too much for iTards. By then the new one will be anounced and your device will be obselete.

    They're still trying to sort out the WiFi failure problems that have plagued the US release. Stay away from this steaming turd of a device. http://www.theregister.co.uk/2010/05/11/ipad_wifi_fix_on_the_way/

    man so many jealous people, why do you froth at the mouth so much if other people are wasting their money..? whats it to you? I cant imagine taking teh time to post about something that I had no interest in and thought was shit, dont you have anything better to do?

    Hey why should people complain about someone else spending thier own money?!?!?! Anywho, all these early adoptors will drive the price down soon enough. Always the same with new tech. If they were cheaper then sure I'd have one on pre-order but I can buy a small powerful laptop for the sort of money Apple are wanting. Never mind :D

    I Love iPads. I love Apple. I love BW. I love bumming foxes (and the occasional bear only hurts a little bit). Fuck you wankers that think that I'm wasting my money on useless shit. I bet you can't say you've only made sensible purchases strictly for necessary products your entire lives. Some people like the iPad. Get over it. Tossers.

    Shame, the BMW/Audi driving winkers will have to wait for their giant iPhone, and I will have to wait till then to call them a prick for having a useless piece of sh1t. Tossers

  • smashingnicey
    I'm a bit of a mac fan, but have to say that at the moment the ipad reminds me of something Dom Jolly would carry about. HELLO, YES, I'M ON THE IPAD - LOOK AT ME - CIAO

What do you think?
