    i got it, I GOT IT, had place 18 in the line, starting there at 6:45 am. w000000000000000000000000t!!!!!!!!!!!

    3pm the store closed, they set up for IPad 2 then at 17:00 they opend with all the cheer and party.

    At about 12am an apple worker counted and there were 280 people!

    The manager was a cool guy, kept chatting with us, we also had a 70 years old granny in the line at place 22, standing 10 hours to get an ipad for her grandchild.
    Apple staff really cared about her, asked her for a seat and anything.

    We had free water/sun umbrellas/coffe, was cool, 10 stars+ apple staff.

    They had ALOT Ipads there, havent count, but i guess there were more than 200, all models and colors.

    Now my IPad Wifi 64gb is still powering up to full battery life, then ill activate with itunes and roll some apps on it.

    10 hours of waiting was worth and i really never ever thought about beeing successful and such early in the line. Number 18 of 400-500.

    Canceled the online order too.

    edit post removed language

    YES! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

    Also cool is that im on a lot of vids of that line in frankfurt germany on youtube :p

    Nice one Lifet1me.
    I picked up my ipad2 this afternoon in London. I avoided the apple stores, and went to my local pcworld. Although I popped in and out several times, I didnt actually start queuing in there til after 2pm. Noone else was around.
    They only had 6 ipads for sale.
    So there were 6 of us eventually waiting until 5pm.
    I got the 32gb black wifi, and grabbed a smart cover too.

    Its my first ipad, so really intrigued and impressed so far.
    Only nuisance - I had an iphone 3g years ago, so the minute I plugged in the ipad, it started syncing 40'ish old crappy apps I used to have. So had to do some clean up.
    hehe

    Euugenn : I think you might have a hard time finding anywhere tomorrow that still have stocks, let alone in 4 days time. Sorry dude.
