iPad 2 Lines Across The Land: They Actually Exist

iP2l

[credit provider=”Twitter / Yfrog” url=”http://yfrog.com/h0kdrtwj”]

Apple’s iPad 2 goes on sale today at 5 p.m. local time across the United States.Apple’s decision not to allow pre-orders is working: Lines are already forming, and in some cities, are becoming rather long.

They are not as long yet as some other Apple launches like the iPhone 4 and original iPad, but are not laughably short like the Verizon iPhone lines last month.

We’re tracking the iPhone lines on Twitter, and will continue to update this post with new lines throughout the afternoon.

If you’re waiting in line for an iPad 2, snap a photo and email it to us, along with your location, to [email protected] We’ll consider it for the gallery. Thanks!
