Anyone know where will be stocking them on launch day in the UK?
I got my original iPad about 5 minutes after they went on sale at a PCWorld store, no queuing or anything, as it wasn't generally known that they'd be stocking them on launch day. The place was deserted as they had opened up early.
I think it'll be different this time around.

I will be hopefully lining up outside Seattle's University Village Apple store around 530-6am. I have to go straight to work after I get it so I hope it doesn't take too long.
The line was all around the block and probably 400 deep when I got in line around 4pm for the Ipad 2. The moment they opened doors and we shuffled down the line it was only 540pm when I was walking out with my brand new Ipad2!!! Let's hope things go as smoothly, if not more, this time around since it is an early morning launch as opposed to 5pm.

I'll pass that time. I remember when iPhone 4 was released. I was at Carrefour Laval store and Roger's servers were down almost all the time hehe.
I was there from 6h30am to 4pm in the line!
As for the iPad 3, I decided to buy it online. Yeah I know I'll prolly have it later than those waiting in line but I'll stay at home with wife and kid tomorrow, maybe saying to myself that I should have waited in line haha

I'm hoping to convince my husband to let me go line up at walmart tonight and make my purchase!! Doubt that he will give me the go ahead, but I will pull out all stops to get him to give me the go ahead.
Would like to win a free shirt too, hat would be fantastic!!

iPad Line Up
This year I pre-ordered, and will wait until UPS arrives. Last year I waited all day long outside in the cold infront of a future shop until they let us in the doors at 4:30pm. Met some good people in line last year but the memories of the cold got me to pre-order. Good luck to those in line, stay warm!

I took this picture at Munich Apple Store at about 7 a.m (European Time).. I received my iPad at about 10 a.m but the line was very long compared to the time I came.. Free coffee offerings time to time from the Apple employees as usual as before. (trying their best to keep customers awake )
Generally the line become more longer than I expected. But everything was working perfectly in order till I arrive. If there are people reading the thread around Munich, I hope it helps to give an opinion..

After a freezing night out in the rain we're finally in the mall!
Kids tried to sneak into mall. Got chased by mall cops like they were in a Kevin Smith movie. Funny.
Guy ran out of the mall in shorts and a t-shirt, in one shoe, jumped in a car and peeled off. Must have dropped an iPad.
We're in now though.
Going to start giving away shirts soon!
