Int’l iPad2 launch causes worldwide frenzy
Long lines were reported in Berlin, London, Sydney and other cities as the iPad 2, the newest version of Apple’s popular touchscreen tablet, went on sale Friday afternoon in 25 countries.
By midafternoon on Friday, hundreds of people were lined up in bright sunshine outside Apple’s London flagship store on Regent’s Street. Those at the front of the line had been waiting for more than 33 hours by the time they got their hands on the device. Some spent the night in sleeping bags on the street.
