    I did 8-5 last year and was number 25 in the queue. Anyone who got there before about 3.30 got something. Everyone who joined the queue up till about 1.30 got exactly what they wanted. After that some people had to compromise to get something on the day.

    This year I ordered at 11.55pm online.

    PS - take a chair !

    It’s looking like a 8am release.

    I’m going to get plenty of grief from friends and family for even considering getting in line at a silly time for an iPad. The truth is I am actually looking forward to it, but nowhere near as excited as I will be when I get my hands on a new iPad!

    It’ll be interesting to hear what time people are thinking of getting in the queue? And any advice, chair is already in the boot!

    I think that's now confirmed so I'm not sure what time the actual shopping centre opens @ MK but if I was you I'd be getting there first thing :)
