    I have seen it in stock a number of times at the DG lifestyle store in IFC and in Tung Chung at Fortress. Both only had the Wifi version, not the 3G though.

    thanks Elle

    i guess the 3 g is better err?

    becos? can use anywhere with a roaming dataplan I suppose?

    tough call - need one as I can use it to control some software remotely...

    is this the knock on from japan earthquake? or suicidal chinese workers?

    any hints as to when we might see new stock?

    Apple is shipping small quantities now and then, the retailers don't really know when they're getting them, enough supply to last a few hours. I got mine by picking 3 retailers close to each other and then just dropped into each whenever I was nearby (Fortress, DG, Ultimate) - lucked out one day at fortress.

    I gave up trying in Hong Kong and bought mine when travelling in the UK

    Strangely enough, there were a couple of stalls selling them at Temple Street night market last night.
    Didnt ask the price.

    ipad2 is readily available at all computer malls in HK, for a little $1500-2000 premium.

    only for westerners, for locals the premium is around $500

    For a premium you can get them in all the computer markets and whatnot. Your best bet for the stores is to call early and often to get some heads up as to when the next shipment might arrive.

    I do not have the 3G iPad but I have an iPhone I've used for tethering on the (surprisingly few) occasions that I've needed access and wasn't near an open wifi. I'd say in the past two months I've needed to tether maybe twice.
