The UK release date of the iPad is still not confirmed. Sources have pointed to an exact date of the 24th of April for the iPad to go on sale in the UK. Two different sources have both confirmed the date, one of them claiming to be an Apple employee. The other source says that Apple store staff are not allowed to take holiday on the 24th but they haven’t be told why. The same date has also been set for Canada also.
There have been rumors about a 8GB iPhone 3GS going around since the summer. But a man in Hamburg, Germany who recently bought a refurbished 8GB iPhone 3G was supirsed to find on the label that it said “iPhone 3GS v2.2, 8GB.” The model and part number are for the older model, but “iPhone 3GS” appears on other places on the packaging as well, implying that the label wasn’t just a typo but an actual part label for an existing or soon to be existing iPhone model.
Back in August, screen caps from an internal website for the Canadian iPhone provider, Rogers Wireless were posted to the internet showing a 8GB iPhone 3GS and stores were apparently under strict orders to sell out their current stock of 8GB iPhone 3G to make room for the new 3GS, which never appeared in stores.
