    Default Waiting for iPad 2 - how's the line?


    We're standing (well, sitting) in line in Tampa waiting for the iPad 2. Arrived at 10am, and there were 50 people in line already at the Apple Store. The device doesn't go on sale until 5pm, and the line is full of folk with every possible Apple product (and one weirdo on a Kindle) consuming media and passing the time. Geeky conversations are the norm, and passerbys like to make fanboy comments.

    Last year for the iPad launch Apple shut down the whole store from 3-5 to prepare for the iPad's launch. They haven't said yet what they'll be doing this year, but I imagine it will be the same. The only bummer is there's no power outlets and my MacBook Air is dead.

    You guys in line? Where at? Share some photos (there's tons of apps great for uploading a photo while on the go) and how it is at your wait.

    can't help but wonder if the verizon lack-luster iphone launch has left apple a bit grumpy. the fact that they gave no way to pre-order ipads online (and get it same day) seems like a pretty straight up way to say, "We want long lines and more media attention, please!" also the 5pm launch time feels like an invite to come sit in line.

    Waiting at Apple Store South Shore, Braintree, MA. nobody here. line officially begins at 3pm per mall regulations.

    oh and this is my day off, just in case someone decides they want to judge me for being in line on a week day and not having anything to do. i work my *** off for 4 days a week so i can have 3 days off every week.

    I ordered mine online. Email says it wont be delivered until April 6. My wife is going to try Danbury Mall in Connecticut to see if she can get one today for me. It's my birthday present and she is mad that i wont get it until a week after my birthday. So if she gets one today i will cancel my online order.

    Holyoke mall, Springfield MA, not bad yet! Same as everyone else. The mall does not care if you stand around or not, just don't block the ways. At least what I've heard. I've kept my distance from the doors for now.

    You do know it's Friday and not every one goes to school on Fridays
    And also some ppl do wake up early to go to work and get out early. So they can go to an apple store after that.
