    I just read on Pocket-Lint that the PC World store on Tottenham Court Road will be opening at midnight to launch the new iPad.

    I just called the general PC World helpline - there doesn't seem to be a phone number for the store itself - and I was told that the iPad goes on sale at all Pc Worlds (with stock) at 12:00 midday Friday.

    Anyone know more about this?

    Haha well I'm planning to go to Kingston Apple store anyway - I picked an original iPad up there easily enough - but the PC World story caught my eye.

    I've spoken to two PC world stores up in Newcastle and both confirmed 12 noon for the iPads to go on sale. They are not allowed before 12.

    Does this mean PC World in London should be open the whole night?

    In other words if I come tomorrow morning at 5:00AM I might get one?

    I picked up my iPad 1 there on launch day (I didn't pre order).

    I wandered in about 11.30am, asked for a 64 gig 3G, paid my money and was out about 5 minutes later!
