Apple iPad 2 sells out just hours after UK launch

iPad 2 demand sees second-gen tablet sell out just hours after official UK launch

Apple has sold out of the eagerly awaited iPad 2 just hours after the second-generation tablet went on sale in the UK


With hundreds of people queuing outside both of Apple’s flagship London stores on Regent Street and in Covent Garden ahead of Friday’s 5pm launch, stocks of the slimmer, lighter, dual-camera and dual-core processor touting device have failed to meet with demand.

Apple’s own stores as well as third party retailers such as Currys and PC World have all announced lack of stock for the iPad 2 which is for the first time available in either a black or new white form.


With prices kicking off at £399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model, raising all the way up to the lofty heights of the 64GB Wi-Fi +3G edition that lined up on shelves priced £659, Apple has made iPad 2 models available to a varying degree of markets and user needs.


With Apple’s Regent Street store unable to confirm when stocks of the iPad 2 would be replenished a spokesperson for the outlet has confirmed to T3 that a page on the Apple website will launch at 9pm this evening offering guidance and reservation possibilities for wannabe iPad 2 owners looking to pick the device up in store and avoid the 3-4 week wait facing online orders.
