Just a quick note to let you guys know that I finally managed to get an iPad, even though it’s not released in any of “my countries” yet. As you might know, I live and work in Malta, but being Danish, I sometimes visit Denmark to catch up with friends and family. Right now I’m on vacation in Denmark and I had the opportunity to take a road trip to Hamburg and purchase some iPads. I had to show up in person, since Apple just told Germany not to ship iPads out of the country.
If you’re from Denmark and you want to do a similar roadtrip, try to call ComSpot in Hamburg, they might still have some 32GB WiFi iPads left and most likely some 64GB too, but I think they’re too expensive. 3G models are sold out everywhere I asked.
My iPad is a 16GB WiFi model, exactly what I wanted, so I was lucky to get one of the last available ones. I bet all Mac stores in Germany will get a new shipments of iPad next week, since I just purchased one, but that’s typical my luck
So far I must say that it’s pretty cool, considering it’s just a big iPod Touch – but the huge screen makes a big difference!! I’ll be posting more thoughts on it soon when I’ve had time to play around with it some more.
