    We’re very keen to get our hands on the iPad2 here at haul, it’s hard to design cases for a product when you don’t have the physical product in your hands. There’s only so much you can do with the drawings and specs.
    Giddy up.

  2. The Wallee says:

    Great news! Very relieved that Oz availability has not been pushed back. If you’re planning to get one make sure you’ve got your Wallee accessories pre-ordered!

  4. mac me says:

    The mac store close at 9pm, 4 hours of selling ipad 2 should be enough to sell all they have in stock….
