As predicted by many, the launch of the iPad 2 here in the UK was a sell-out. Up and down the land multitudes queued, some of them overnight, to get their hands on the new device. At the flagship London Store, by the time the doors opened, the queue was doubling back on itself. A store representative said that stocks of the basic 16GB 3G model in white had already sold out before the store even officially opened, simply from going down the queue and taking pre-reservations.
It was the same story elsewhere, with Curry’s Docklands Store selling its allocation of 100 once again before the store had officially opened! With over 1 million sales in the US on its first day of release, its looking like the iPad 2 is bound to be an overwhelming success around the world.
