iPad 2 New Zealand launch

, posted: 25-Mar-2011 19:25

This afternoon I was at YooBee in Newmarket, Auckland as the iPad 2 was launched in New Zealand. As Apple themselves don't have a store here in NZ, YooBee has established itself as the biggest retailer for consumers to buy Apple gadgets. The new iPad was in strong demand with hundreds of people lining up to get their hands on this, the newest Apple product to hit New Zealand. It seems the rain wasn't much of a deterrent.

I'll be talking in more detail about the iPad 2 on the next episode of the NZ Tech Podcast. There is also a mystery gadget that was shown to be me at Yoobee which we'll be covering too.

Hundreds queued up into the evening the buy some of the 1st iPad 2 units available outside of the US

Most people didn't even have an interest in trying out one of the display units - instead they just queued up immediately to buy one.

There appeared to be boxes and boxes of stock - though possibly not enough to satisfy demand
