UK iPad launch sees people queueing since yesterday

As we post this story at 8am, the iPad is just going on sale across the country.

Apple’s tablet will be available at Currys and PC World stores, plus some other Apple dealers, such as Apple’s flagship store in Regent Street, London.

And it’s at the latter, The Telegraph reports, that rabid Apple fans have been queueing since yesterday afternoon to ensure they get one of the magical gadgets on launch day.

Although Sky News says they’ve been queueing since yesterday evening/night rather than afternoon, but either way, it’s definitely been since yesterday.

The Telegraph shows a picture of them, looking rather forlorn, sat in camping chairs under their umbrellas. Yes, it was raining. They must be really keen.

Still, at least they could tell everyone on Facebook about their plight via their iPhones, no doubt.

Should be interesting to see if there are queues or even rushes elsewhere, outside of a few real fanatics.

The iPad, should you be thinking of going down to PC World and grabbing one yourself, will set you back from £429 (for the basic 16GB wi-fi) to £699 (if you want 3G as well, and 64GB of storage).

That’s if there are any left by the time you get there.
