    Default iPad (3rd Gen) Launch tomorrow 27 April 2012

    Just wanted to see if anybody is planning to rush their nearest iStore tomorrow, for the new iPad?

    Whats the feeling, will we see people camping outside the store?

    Yip, yip!! 32GB wifi for me, Melrose iStore or Greenstone Incredible Connection... Apparently with the iPad 2 last year there were no queues at Incredible...

    This is SA, there's no queues for iPads.

    Will go to Makro first as that's closest.

    So the resellers will also start selling tomorrow?

    Gees, there was one last year at Melrose Arch. Took me over 3 hours to get my iPad 2...

    I could not believe the long queue at gateway istore, some even had their camping chairs out. Good times were to be had, chatted with some people while I was waiting, good vibe everybody was excited to get their hands on the new ipad.

    0 queue at Melrose Arch and the sales pitch was "buy one cause I'd buy it"... genius ON

    Got mine there this morning. In and out within about 7 minutes... Apparently they only have 16 of each model and the 64GB 4G was sold out, this at around 11am...

    Picked up a 64GB wifi at Digicape (CT City) this morning, queue of 16, quickly sorted, had many left with no queue when I departed.

    This was for the GF, mind you, I don't use anything that needs to connect to iTunes
    On the internet you can be anything you want.

    It's strange that so many people choose to be stupid.

    Yip, there's not the usual euphoria associated with a device launch this time round.

    In fact there was no queue at Melrose Arch but there is at home!! Do you think I've even had a chance to get my hands on the thing?
