Can We Pre-Order the iPad in Canada?

by on March 19th, 2010

The iPad was available to be pre-ordered in the USA on March 12th. The iPad will debut on April 3rd. Apple stated that iPad International availability will come in late April. Let’s say that date could be Saturday, April 24th, exactly two weeks after the USA launch.

Will Canadians Be Able to Pre-Order iPads?

Apple is allowing US customers to pre-order iPads for delivery or in-store pickup. It’s unknown at this point if Apple will allow the same to happen in Canada. The iPad hype is pretty high at the moment and allowing pre-orders would make sense.

If Apple was to allow pre-orders for Canadians, I would assume it would be available on April 2nd or 3rd, which is exactly the same amount of time Americans got their pre-orders in. Some hardcore Canucks will be driving down on April 3rd to pick up their iPads in the USA. If you’re one of them, please be sure to let us know how your iPad experience goes!

If Canada had the ability to pre-order iPads for delivery or in-store pickup, would you jump on the opportunity?

    I hope so. . . . I want one the day its released and since there is no Apple store around me I will have to order it. I have a MacBook Pro and for the most part its overkill. I love Pages, Numbers, and Keynote and seeing it on the iPad made me want one.

    That's a good point about pricing. I hope it will be the same as the US pricing.

    Yeah right! keep dreaming!

    I say add 50$ CAN for each US iPad price.

    Most likely, but with the CDN dollar almost at parity with the US dollar, we can HOPE! :)

    How can I pre-order in Canada until I have a firm understanding of what data plans will be offered by our Telcos? Can a tether the iPad to my iPhone? Steve Jobs said “no” to a very specific question (as reported earlier) – there may be more to it. If I can tether to my 6 Gig plan then I'll likely order a 3G iPad, if not, I'm more likely to order a WiFi only iPad. Will our Telcos offer an unlimited data plan (like AT&T in the US) or a 6 Gig plan for $30 (as Rogers did for the iPhone)? We need some answers and our service providers are being rather coy about the whole thing – don't you agree?
