iPad 2 Launch Day at the Apple Store in Clarendon, VA

Yesterday was iPad 2 launch day and, of course, I was there to grab Apple’s most powerful iOS device by far. I got about 2 hours of sleep last night, as I just couldn’t put the thing down. I’ll post more about my reactions to the iPad 2 in a bit but, until then, read my thoughts on the first iPad and just go get get one in your hands for a few minutes at an Apple Store.

The point of this post is to share a little video I shot, edited and posted while waiting in line at the Clarendon Apple Store in Arlington, VA. The line formed at around noon, and when this video was taken there were a little over 200 people in line. But, before the store swung its doors wide at 5 p.m., the line got to near 300 people. (I was about 15th in line.)

The line was so long that I had to abbreviate the stroll. Do please pardon a bit of whimsy in the audio track…

So, how was your iPad 2 launch experience?

    Saw this linked form Clarendon Patch. I was in that line as well, my friend and I are are shown clearly at the 10 second mark. Wasn’t that bad for us, but I imagine it wasn’t fun for those at the end of the line. My friend ended up getting the last 64gb ATT iPad in the store, and we were only about 60 people deep.
