I am currently at the side of the store where the queue started last year !
No sign of anyone else yet but I don't think it'll be long (I hope not !)

Hope you have a comfortable night. As much as I'd like an iPad 3, with work tomorrow I don't think I could pull an all nighter.

I'm planning on coming down early tomorrow morning (around 6am). If you could post a couple of updates on the queue length around 5am - 6am then it would certainly be appreciated.

Hehe didn't make it in time for the food court. I'm the sixth in line with my friend in the camping chairs! *waves*

Thanks

Tesco Extra on Saville Street started selling them 15 minutes ago... If they had more than eight in stock I would have gone down. I really can't be bothered queuing all night like I did for the iPad 1 event!

4:30am update- The queue surprisingly isn't that long, about 25 deep.

Maybe its the music keeping people away ?

I've just come back from Meadowhall, they seemed to have lots of stock (at 3pm)

I ordered online and had one delivered, but after seeing mine my Mum wanted one so we went meadowhall on the offchance they would have some left.

She picked up a 32gb white wi-fi.
