With just hours to go until the UK release of the Apple iPad 2, queues outside Apple’s flagship Regent Street store have begun circling the block with Team Apple posing a strong force.
Lead by first in the queue, 32 year old Jewels Lewis, the first 12 people preparing to buy the eagerly awaited iPad 2 have shown their support for the Cupertino-based company and which side of T3’s OS campaign they fall by donning Team Apple t-shirts.
Set to go on sale at 5pm this evening, eager iPad 2 consumers have been queuing from as early as 7:30 yesterday morning to avoid the 2-3 week delivery waiting period that is to plague those early online preorders made following this morning’s web store addition.
Adding front and rear facing cameras, the new A5 1GHz dual-core processor and a slimmer, lighter form factor, the Apple iPad 2 will be available from £399 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model with prices rising up to £659 for the 64GB Wi-Fi +3G edition. For the first table Apple’s market leading tablet will be available as either a black or a white model.
