The new iPad that was revealed to feverish fanbois last night in San Fran will be on UK shelves in about a week's time - 16 March. Yes, Brits, you can pre-order one now, or grab a sleeping bag and start making your way to Regent Street.

The new iPad will be available in black or white, pricing will be the same as the iPad 2 was on launch and it come in six varieties. The Reg Hardware lads got their fingerprints all over one here.

Those who want to save a little cash and don't need to look at pictures of flowers on 3.1m-pixel screens, can get the iPad 2 with £70 knocked off, now selling at £329 for the Wi-Fi-only model or £429 for the Wi-Fi and 3G slab.
