Lines For The iPad 2

"The crowds aren't as big as at some prior events - including the launch of the original iPad itself - but folks are lining up to be the first to get an iPad 2 at launch events across the country. Earlier today we posted pics tweeted from Apple's PopUp Apple Store in Austin, TX, and now we have several photos from the Flat Iron Crossing Apple Store in Broomfield, CO, and the Apple Store in Carlsbad, CA."

I wouldn't mind waiting in line here, it looks like an oasis! At SXSW they also needed barricades at the temporary store Apple set up for the festival, and there were also reports of long lines in various other locations but it appears the lines moved along fairly smoothly. For some though, being in line was worth the cost of a nice 3G iPad 2 as this fellow paid $900.00 USD for the right to be first in line in Manhattan. That's dumb. One thing is certain though, if you didn't wait in line you will have to wait two or three weeks to get your iPad 2 delivered according to Apple, so perhaps waiting in line this time was the way to go eh?

Verizon iPhone Demand Not What Was Expected

"The day is finally upon us, when U.S. iPhone owners get a choice in which carrier to put up with. The Verizon iPhone 4 launched publicly Thursday morning to mixed lines across the country."

Mixed results indeed, as there were nowhere near the lines for the Verizon iPhone 4 that everyone expected. It could be for several reasons though, namely the pre-order sales to existing customers from week earlier, or the fact that it is so close to the iPhone 5 the smart move is to wait a few months and see what Apple is going to announce. I'm betting that it is a combination of both. The current customers gave Verizon their best ever pre-order numbers so quite a few obviously ordered the iPhone 4, and when it opened up to the general public, I'm pretty sure those AT&T customers that want to switch are going to wait until the iPhone 5 is announced. At least that is what I'm surmising since according to this survey there weren't that many switchers making the purchase. I guess we shall really find out in June when the iPhone 5 is expected to be announced won't we?
