[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lVOlDhY_aT8]YouTube - Hong Kong iPad Launch in Times Square (DG Lifestyle Store)[/ame]​

The iPad went on sale in nine new territories this Friday: Austria, Ireland, Belgium, Hong Kong, Mexico, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore. It its report on the Hong Kong launch, the Wall Street Journal's "China RealTime Report" blog talked to a local vendor, Kurt Lo, who was delighted that instead of importing iPads from "friends" (cough) in the US, he can now buy them at his local store to sell on to customers in his own Hong Kong stores, as well as stores in mainland China and Vietnam, where the grey iPad market is huge (China still does not have a confirmed launch date for the iPad).

“Crazy — the iPad is crazy,†Lo told the WSJ. “Makes me very crazy and very busy today.â€

The WSJ says that Lo has already had between 300 and 400 orders this week, up from around 200 to 300 in previous weeks. The WSJ also reports that one Apple reseller in Hong Kong's Wanchai district could only offer customers a spot on its massive waiting list, as it didn't expect to get any more iPad stock for at least another two weeks.

That alway new and better product will come out, but when you wait till 2nd Gen near you, maybe the 3 gen on the pipe line, you will never own any iPad.......

In Singapore some guy spend 5 to 6 hours to buy the iPad, lucky me go to the right store, not much people there, and I manage to get it within 2 hours....

Love the thought that most of those in the photo have their backs turned because they are off work, sick :)
