What time is everyone lining up? Wish we could reserve the iPad 2 like we did the iPhone 4.

I recently moved so I have to go to this Apple store and I've never been, is this store inside the mall? Is there a lot of foot traffic on this store? I used to go to Otay Lakes branch on Chula Vista and you have to get in line early there 'cause it gets pretty busy there and so I wonder on the North County Fair branch if it gets busy? Can anyone let us know?

This store is in the mall and it seems pretty busy when I have been there. I lined up here for the iPhone 4 at 6am and they had us outside the mall entrance doors for a while then moved the line inside. Not sure how they will have us line up this time since they aren't selling them until 5pm. When are you thinking you will get in line?

I hate this 5 pm launch Apple is doing. Now I don't know what time I'm going to get in line. I'd rather Apple do morning or midnight launch that way there will be shorter line because of less foot traffic during those hours but since this is a mall and a lot of foot traffic, I bet there is going to be a longer line because even people who are not planning to buy iPad 2 and mallgoers see the line, they're going to want to get in line now too!

Usually on morning or midnight launches, I'd go about 1 1/2 hour before the release but now I'm not sure, do you think I'll be cutting it too close if I get there 3:30 pm? Is it crowded at that mall during Fridays?

San Marcos & Carmel Mtn would be the closest.

Looks like about 40 people now in line. They have it spit into 3 different sections.

Just to keep everyone from blocking the walkways and store fronts. 1 section right in front of store (where I am ;-)) then next section near the center of the mall, then next section out the door by one person so far. About 80 people now per apple staff assigned to work the line. :eek:
