Apple iPad 2 Lines: Will you Queue Up or Buy Online?

By Alan Ng - Mar 11, 2011

You won’t need us to tell you that the moment has now arrived for Apple fans in the US. The iPad 2 will soon be available to buy in retail stores, and in order to have a chance of picking one up before supply runs out, you’ll have to prepare yourselves for a long queue adventure to get one.

We’re interested to know just how many of you are prepared to wait for countless hours to pick one up from your nearest Apple seller, and how many of you are just going to buy one online when Apple start taking orders.

Just to refresh, you’ll be able to pick up an iPad 2 from 1am PT or 4am ET from Apple’s store online, but if you want to get one in person on launch day, you can queue up ready to buy one starting from 5pm local time in your area today.

We bet that there are even queues that have started right now for the crazy individuals who don’t mind camping outside all evening and daytime just to make sure you’re first in line for the iPad 2. If you’re one of these people who is preparing to queue through the night, we’d love for you to upload a photo and send it to us below. We’ll update this article with some photos if you send them in.

    I have been camping since 5pm on Thursday. Right now I’m first in line, followed by a friend, and a stranger who we in no time became very good friends with. We are camping out a bestbuy in Miami and its cold for us Miami people at 51 degrees. But its worth it. Lots of people driving around to check out the not so big line, but I’m sure it will change as the morning rolls by and they notice online buying will only get your iPad 2 delivered in the next week or so. By that time my iPad 2 will be overused 😛
