wtf??
You called a young lady who made an omission (probably not deliberatly & probably not in her mother tongue - but you've refrained answering that particluar question) when answering a general question "a dumb bint".
If you genuinely consider that to be acceptable, then I'll presume you're fine with being called say, a chauvinistic prick.

Re: iPad 2 availability near Zug/Zürich?

To be fair, there are plenty of nerds arguing the toss about this exact same subject on the Apple forums. What confuses some people is the fact that you get a position fix in google maps with the wifi version, but this is based on Skyhook technology (looks up your Wi-Fi router MAC addresses in a pre-mapped database).

The good news is that if you have a jailbroken Wifi iPad, you can get a bluetooth stack from Cydia which allows you to use a bluetooth GPS receiver (cheap as chips off Ebay).

Nope.
I just believe in a certain degree of respect & decency toward others.

I found the 3G versions to be available quite well, but since I wanted the WiFi version I ordered it online at Apple. It took 3-4 weeks before I had it.
Harrie, where have you seen the 3G version? Thanks!

my wife bought one today. Apple had some wifi ones left and a couple of 64gb wifi + 3Gs (only in black), Manor had three wifi-only ones, everywhere else it was sold out.

the wifi version is available online, just check on www.toppreise.ch, the 3G version is the hardest to come by.

Re: iPad 2 availability near Zug/Zürich?

Finally I balked away from buying them but in the Zurich Apple Store they had them (3G, wifi only) in stock. Yeah maybe 16 Gb White with 3G not, but yes on the black.

How funny and interesting that the 3G models are the hard to get ones in CH! I was just in Canada last week, and the Wifi models were sold out everywhere while the 3G models (only in white though!) were available - we walked into Apple store, bought one, walked out
