Apple iPad 2 UK Stock Update : One Month Later

Just over one month ago, the iPad 2 was launched in the UK and as expected, stocks were quasi nonexistent with most national retailers like the Carphone Warehouse reporting chronic shortages.

Unfortunately, even five weeks after the launch of the tablet, stocks are still very low with Apple reporting up to two weeks delay in the delivery of all the 12 iPad 2 stock keeping units.

Carphone Warehouse, Tesco, Best Buy, Misco, Viking Direct, Currys and Argos and Comet have sold out on all the iPad 2 SKUs and some are reporting up to four weeks waiting time. You will be able to get the most expensive iPad 2 from John Lewis (64GB 3G in white).

Apple changed the delivery window for the iPad 2 from six weeks to two weeks nearly two weeks ago so it seems that supply is still having a hard time catching up with demand and competitors are finding it equally hard to provide with a suitable alternative to the ipad 2.

Should you still crave for an iPad 2 and want one ASAP, you can either get some from Expansys, albeit with a VERY steep premium or from Ebay.

Alternatively, it is worth considering buying the older versions of the iPad which are being heavily discounted by the likes of Currys and Viking-direct.

    We have the older version iPad, and this works fantastic, so would definitely recommend buying this version if you can’t get the latest
