Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

I was told the queue this morning stretched around the corner from the Zürich Apple Store, past McDonalds, all the way to Jelmoli. Surely not, did anyone see this?

Dam,n, should have taken the tram to work this morning, it goes down Bahnhofstrasse.

Is the Apple Store likely to have stock this morning?

And I can understand them wanting to nip the whole the number thing in the bud. Just call it the new model, people are smart enough to understand. The Ipod was like that for years, people just called it the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc. generation.
except only Apple fanboys seem to know which gen is which.

but i see your point though... it's the same with cars.

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

Ingenodata in Basel all had loads at lunchtime (as did Interdiscount and Manor). Though no 64GB.

One person in the queue in front of us.

UPS were always good at calling when they've tried to deliver to me in the past. Hopefully they were given your number.

Damn, I'm just round the corner from there! Was also looking at 32 GB - 16 is too little I fear, and the price premium for the 64 GB just too much Oh well can hit the Apple Store in a couple of hours...

Depends. All I know is that the 16gb is too small. If you plan on playing a lot and need your entire music collection with you all the time, then the 64gb is the one to get for you.

I personally ordered the 64gb 4G, mainly because I'll be selling my 64gb iPad 2 for it, which makes the price tag more bearable.

Re: iPad 3 to be launched March 7th?

In other news: I just won an iPhone 4S five minutes ago at the tombola after the training workshop I just participated in :-) That was the first thing I've won in my entire live. Sweetens the wait for the new iPad next week...

I was there at the Bahnhofstrasse store at 12.30, and the shop was busy but there was no queue. They had the usual guard rails up outside with a couple of employees waiting. You tell them which model and colour you want and they give you a card. You then go in and downstairs to what is usually the Genius Bar, and they give you the box and you pay for it.

Couldn't be easier, I was in and out of there in under 10 minutes. That said, of course I don't know how many they have left, but I couldn't help wondering why people were camping overnight when you can just stroll in at lunchtime and pick one up!
