Apple’s new iPad hits stores on Friday, March 16 at 8 a.m. local time in ten countries, and as usual, people are already starting to line up outside Apple Stores worldwide in order to purchase the new tablet.
Waiting in line overnight outside Apple stores on big product release days has become a tradition among Apple enthusiasts. These gatherings tend to turn into something of a celebration.
When lining up for Apple’s previous release, the iPhone 4S, people saw farm animals, large sums of money being turned down for a spot in line, and even Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, who joined the line in order to buy his own device. He even tweeted about the experience:
The long wait begins. I’m first in line. The guy ahead was on the wrong side and he’s pissed. (@ Apple Store) 4sq.com/mT9C6V
