As early as the Wednesday 23 April Apple fans were starting to line the sidewalk outside the Sydney’s Apple Store to be the first iPad 2 owners in Australia.
As with all new releases and product refreshes from Apple the device was in heavy demand with people lining up at Apple stores around Australia.
In Sydney the first on the wueue was 21 year old Alex Lee who had been waiting outside the Apple Store in Sydney since 12 Midday on Wednesday 23 March.
Lee an IT consultant from Canada living in Sydney was lining up for his second iPad 2 after he purchased his first one in Boston during the initial US Launch.
Lee said “I need to get one for my sister and if I can I’m getting one for a charity auction for Japan tsunami relief,”
“I’m not taking any chances on scalpers taking away my ability to get one for her.”
Lee a self admitted Apple Fanboy admits this is not the first Apple product he has queued up for queuing up for the original iPad at the Apple Store in Dubai, the iPhone 4 in London and the iPhone 3 and iPhone 3Gs at Apple stores in Canada.
