iPad Lines – With the launch of the iPad today on Saturday April 3rd, lines have been forming outside of stores all around the world. It’s no secret that the iPad has had a lot of hype and excitement which undoubtedly has been the factor which has generated the huge lines outside of stores. Not only are these lines existing in our local community’s and neighboring cities, but from all around the Country as well as all around the world. Lines for the iPad started early yesterday night. People camped out on the streets in tents and sleeping bags just to have the chance to be one of the first people to get their hands on an iPad. They went on sale this mornings and hundreds and even thousands of people rushed out to stores.
What Apple has done with this product is extraordinary. Their marketing techniques were realistic and right to the point. The company apparently played every card just right that was available to them because this is a $500 and even $700 product. You see, it’s available in three different hard drive capacity’s which is why there is differences in prices. Obviously, the more things you need to store on your iPad the larger the hard drive you will need to purchase for your iPad. Later this month, the 3G capable iPads are said to launch which are going to cost significantly more money and said to sell significantly better as well. This means big fortune and fame for the already successful Apple company. This kind of demand around a highly expensive device is extremely rare and Apple is sure to see huge profit from the phenomenon.
The longest lines that have been recorded are where you might have guessed, in New York City. This of course being a place where people have the money, have the desire for a portable computer like device in means of business and personal use, and have the need so badly that they will jump on the idea of waiting out for an iPad on its release date.
