Any successful way to buy iPad2

Tried CGW, vPost, Borderlinx but Apple rejected my purchases due to these are international forwarder. Any one has any luck with other ways to get your hands on iPad2?

if u r thinking about getting it at Apple price.. sad to say (for now) there is no way. cause

1) Out of stock
2) order from Apple store will takes u 4 - 5 weeks shipping time

if u need it so urgently, the only way to buy now is from ppl in hwz market place or ebay. u will have to pay premium price. there's no other way.

i suggest to wait, not like u cant live without ipad 2 or ur job really depend on it

The only way you can buy it is to ask a friend in US to buy for you online and ship you.

That is what I am going to help my friends in Singapore to do it.... I have my personal Fedex account they can ship to me very fast.

Even in the US, it's difficult to buy them at retail prices. People queue up at stores like Best Buy and Apple Store, and later find out it's out of stock. Scalpers send many people to literally buy up all the stock at New York's Apple Store. People at the Apple forums now hate Asians for creating the iPad black market. Screw the scalpers from China. Haha

I had problems with shipito also.

This particular service has had quite abit of success. But their method is a little.... troublesome.

Maybe someone is willing to give it a go?

In case you start reaching for desperate measures or prices, just stay informed on the ongoing "screen bleeding" thing with the ipad 2...it may not be a bad thing waiting a while (there are quite a bit of pissed off folks on the apple forums)...just saying. Consider before you start paying ridiculous markups...
