    A few sources are saying that as demand soars in the US a further delay to the UK release is 'a definite possibility'. Apparently Jobs has said that currently 'demand outstrips supply'

    Well we'll know Monday I guess - they wont take preorders if they have no date to fill them by.

    Im not seeing a credible source for this though, just pure speculation. Sadly I wouldn't put it past them to continue to favour the US market but if I was to put money on it, I'd bet we're still on track for may 10 preorder and end of may delivery :yes: All the signs are there really. If you look at how many they can make a month, I dont think you'd see dribbles going into apple stores in the US, I think if all the production was going there, you'd see plentiful supplies.

    I'm pretty sure that they've been building up international stocks the last month

    I phoned florida again today and neither store would let me pre-order and both stores said they were out of 3g and out of wifi :(

    it's looking less and less promising by the day

    Don't panic! (Hey, that could be a tag line for a book!)

    Yet. :unsure:

    When I went to get mine on opening day, there were only a limited number. Fortunately, I was there early enough so that I was in the first group that actually got them. The ones after us were told they'd have more that afternoon. True to their word, they did and everybody who wanted one, got one.

    Not to say that's what will happen. But I just don't think they really know what their inventory levels will look like in a week.

    Its going to be a tricky decision for you :yes: do you preorder or not? if you don't you might not have one in stock when you get back
