    Anyone going to the iPad2 launch at the Apple Store in Bluewater?

    If so what time are you making your way there? ;)

    I was thinking to get there around 12-1pm see what the queues are like then either queue up or wonder about :p

    I'll be doing the same probably. Just booked the day off.

    Shame you can't get your place in the queue then go watch a film!

    I was planning on getting there after two. Hope the queue isn't too long by then.

    Anyone know how many each store will get?

    Im thinking the local PCworld, Comet or Currys might be a better bet with everyone planning on going to the retail stores?

    All depends on who has stock and how much stock they have?

    Im after the 16 or 32GB 3G

    The latest

    About 30th in the queue right now. The :apple: staff have already been out:

    • They haven't yet received delivery of their allocation
    • There will be plenty enough for the people already here
    • About midday they will ask everyone what model they want
    • A dedicated team will issue tickets based on our midday orders about 3pm
    • Should go without saying really - They will only start selling at 5pm

    Just 7 hours to wait then! :eek:

    Been at Bluewater in the queue for a hour now. The queue goes from the Apple Store up to House of Fraser and back around all the way back to Oasis! I'm in front of Russell & Bromley :p

    They said they are handing out tickets at 3pm and it's up to 2 per customer.
