My iPad 2 has already died!!!
So after standing in line from 4:30 to 5:30 and then using it for about twenty minutes, I took an hour to drive to my dads and then at around 8:30 I finally got to use it. I was using it for about two hours and then it started to act up.
At first it was a little bit of lag between about a quarter inch on the left side and the rest of the screen. Shutting down all of the multi tasking seemed to have fixed it but about thirty minutes later it got worse, it the left side of the screen and the rest of it were not even showing the same apps or anything. Once this started I got on my Mac and tried restoring it, that didnt help. I decided to restore it again and thats when everything went down hill...
I can't get a photo of the second restore screen because its too dark but its basically just a smear of the restore bar streched across the screen.
Now that the screen has restore screen has gone away:
You can see it is the lock screen and I can still unlock it just by kind of feeling for it and it will open. You can still open up apps and stuff but all you can see is the top little screen (what I called the left side earlier).
Here is a photo with what I think is note pad:
So as you can see the touch sensors and the actual iOS works fine but the screen is dead.
So I just figured I would be first to share that the iPad 2 does seem to have a few issues and I plan on giving **** at Apple tomorrow.

Well, Well Well...
Tough luck. Seems like a hardware problem.
Now you have to stand in line once again, to replace it.
Can happen to any one on any device.
Think before you Sync Since you may Sink
The More Tweaks you have - Less Memory is left
Oh man. I feel your pain. You must be totally disappointed.
Take it back immediately and tell them u want a completely new n different device. I feel ur pain. Thats a shame but with soo many ipad2 rushed out, there was bound tombe a few bad apples. Don't let them try to tell u they gonna fix it. Say exchange it for a new one or ur money back. PERIOD! Try to go there early so i don't have to be standing in line long. That is messed up though. Seems like a hardware issue cuz that screen looks f$&@$& up. Good luck n post back what apple does to solve ur problem.
I suspect this isn't going to work but, just in case and before you wait in line at the store.... and, OK, you've probably tried it already - so I apologise in advance...but....
Press and hold the 'Power' and 'Home' button for about 30 seconds - it can seem like a real long time - until the white Apple logo appears - the iPad will then reboot - takes a while, so have patience and - if you're lucky, you'll be back at your Home screen.
I will keep my fingers crossed for you - let us know of your progress - either fixing the problem yourself or how you get on at the Apple store.
Hard reset won't fix this.
Apple has not RUSHED out the iPad 2

When you purchase any computer regardless of brand one can have a DOA (dead on arrival). Apple's Quality control is one of the best in the industry with out exceptions. Apple will replace it with a brand new unit no questions asked ok. Yes I feel sorry for the OP. Just take it back straight away and all will be well. Oh one more thing unlike a normal Pc they do not fix they replace.
I wouldn't even bother with queueing in the regular line: just go straight to any staff member and tell them you have a DOA device.
I'm sure you're right!! But there's nothing to lose, so I thought it was worth a try......sorry, if I got people's hopes up....
