iPad App Store half broken across the pond.

UK iPad hopefuls and those who’ve already ordered and had a device shipped to your door have one slight issue to look forward to — no mobile App Store. For the time being, iPad users who go to fire up the App Store app on the device will be greeted with a dialog box telling the horrendous tale of no support for their country.

The issue is apparently because the App Store on the iPad requires a US-based email address and credit card number. VPN’s can fake the first part fairly easy. The second part however will require the assistance of a second, state-side buddy willing to offer his name and credit to you all so you can get your iPad loving geek fest on.

Of course, there is one way that you can still enjoy apps on your outsourced iPad — simply download them in iTunes first. Having to manually hook up to a computer to install/update apps is hardly a “solution”. But, at this point it’s all you’ve got if you’re not residing within the US boundaries.
