Apple released a second shipment of iPad 2 tablets to its Apple stores this morning, and customers are lining up again to get their hands on the new tablet. Reports came in yesterday that some Apple stores were opening an hour earlier to sell their new stock.
iPad 2 fever has taken a deep hold over the Apple fanbase. The Post’s Justin Bank said that he called the Clarendon Apple store last night to check in this morning’s shipment and heard that 200 people lined up outside the store yesterday— despite the sign in the store’s window saying they hadn’t gotten a new shipment yet.
Here are some reports on Twitter about lines this morning at the Georgetown, Clarendon and Pentagon City Apple stores:
Twitter user William Ellis said that there were about 50 people in line for the iPad 2 at the Pentagon City store, but that the selection wasn’t that fantastic.
Other reports on Twitter indicate that this is happening across the country. Online, the Apple store said to expect a four- to five-week shipping time for the iPad 2.
