Is this because the iPad hasn't.t been released yet in the UK?
Yes, spot on.
If this is the case can I still purchase apps on iTunes and the sync them from my Mac?
You can purchase anything you want from the UK store but you cannot purchase from the US store unless you have a US account and that requires a US CC and a US address.MacBook Pro 15", Mac OS X (10.6.3), iPhone 3GS 32G
we have the same issue have you got any further with this yet, we are us residents so have cc and address but were currently in the uk and get this same message when we go to the app store HELP ?ipad
If you have a credit card etc, then you might need to set up a new Apple ID with your USA details. You then need to switch between accounts depending on which store you want to access. If your existing Apple ID already has your US info in it then you might just need to change your store to the US one. On the home page, scroll to bottom of screen and change store by clicking the flag button on bottom right.
For others that don't have a credit card or US bank account then there is still an option. Google is your friend.
So, I am from a country where no operator currently offering iPhone. In spite there are plenty of them in everyday use, the same will be with iPad. I will get one next week and wondering how I can buy apps from the iTunes. Want to avoid help from friends living in US and charging their credit cards...
Somebody up there mention that there is an option "Google is your friend"! Any help? More details...
Thanks!soon to have iPad
"Google is your friend." - very interested to know what this means. Like others on this thread, I could not resist in purchasing the iPad while in NY this past Easter Break. I would like to access the App Store sooner than wait for App Store Uk to open up shop. Please elaborate what you mean.

It means use Google to find your answers - any thing designed to circumvent Apple protection mechanisms and systems cannot be discussed here, so we cannot help you more than to suggest using Google.MacBook Pro 15", Mac OS X (10.6.3), iPhone 3GS 32G
I have same issue, all you have to do, is download your apps to your pc or mac, then sync your ipad with itunes, making sure you tick sync apps, I have downloaded a dozen apps, etc all sync perfectly well.Sony Vaio, Windows XP
I can confirm that this method works.
Should you want to do any in-app purchasing on your iPad, however, (like upgrading to "Pro" in the excellent Layers app for instance), that won't work.
I have a credit card less (i.e. no access to funds) US account, which I log on to on the iPad in order to browse the store at the moment, then purchase the apps on the MacBook.
If I log into the UK account on the iPad, it gives me a "Cannot Connect to the App Store. The App Store is not supported in this Country" message.
I was hoping that I could avoid this from within apps (in-app purchases) but clearly I was being optimistic.MacBook Core 2 Duo, Mac OS X (10.4.11)
I am using my iPad in HK, I just login my HK apps store n purchase the apps from my PC then sync back to iPad. Not sure this address the problem here, but at least I can purchase apps except iBooks.
I will be interest to see any other options tooWindows 7, .
