I'm gonna be there really really early morning :D I still hesitate between 32GB 3G white and 64GB WiFi white :rolleyes: Coming from Belgium though so that's a long way to get an iPad 2 !

Wow I can't believe that people are already lined up this early... I hope when I get there at three it's not too crowded... Keep posting pictures of the line as it gets bigger so I know if I need to get there sooner

Thanks

Ok now if you want to get in line, there's a second one, near Macy's, the one in front of the Apple Store is 'full' (don't worry just 12 in my line).

are there different lines for the 3G and wifi models? or is their any other way that they are seperating people?

thats not too bad i was in a line a little bit bigger then this one last year for the 3g when it went on sale in may and it only took one hour from standing in line to walking out the store... but i still have four hours till i get off of work so i hope not too many more people show up

I've asked some people around and they are going to take the 16GB wifi model mostly in black. I'm taking the white 64GB WiFI.

soya

No difference, the second one is a way to clear the way for people walking in the mall that's all.
