iPad 2 Line Starts in Texas

Apple’s iPad 2 isn’t available until the afternoon of Friday, March 11, but that hasn’t stopped one potential customer from setting up a tent outside their local Apple Store to be first in line. The tent is sitting outside the Knox Street store’s temporary location on McKinney Avenue, according to The MacCast.

The iPad 2 launch is a little different than the original iPad roll out because Apple isn’t offering pre-order sales or reservations, so anyone that wants the new tablet on day one will have to stand in line. Online sales will be available some time on March 11.

The MacCast suspects the tent outside the Knox Street store may belong to Justin Wagoner, who gained his moment of fame by being the first in line for the iPhone 4, too.

Apple’s iPad 2 was introduced by Steve Jobs at a special media event several days ago. The new version of the multimedia tablet includes a new Apple-designed A5 dual-core processor, faster graphics, front and rear-facing digital cameras, a built-in gyroscope, support for GSM or CDMA wireless data networks, and black or white bezels.
