iPad 2 UK Shipping Begins in 2 to 3 Weeks

For those wanting to keep away from the iPad 2 queues tomorrow afternoon, it seems you’ll have an even longer wait than expected as the expected shipping time for the iPad 2 went online with in the last hour and the moment they went online, the dispatch time was 2 to 3 weeks.

Out of the 12 variations of the iPad 2 that are available, all of them have a shipping date of 2 to 3 weeks. Good news is that you can order now though and every model, black/white, 3G/WiFi only and all three capacities of each, is available to pre-order, but you’ll need to wait to get it.

It isn’t clear why Apple opted to open pre-orders on the early hours of the 25th other than trying to get more people in to stores, or perhaps due to known shortages of the new tablet device.

If you are waiting a bit longer to see if Apple decrease the waiting time, I wouldn’t hold back as NZ went online earlier today, due to the time difference, and already jumped up to 3 to 4 weeks. So if you insist on ordering online, you might as well do it now if you can’t wait.

Let us know how you get on in the comments and if you decided to go in-store.
