About two dozen people were queued up outside Perimeter Mall just before 5 a.m. Friday, many clutching older-model iPads.
At Lenox Square, where the doors to the mall were opened to iPad devotees at 6 a.m., the line had grown to between 300 and 400 by 7:30, still 30 minutes before the new tablet would go on sale.
Lynn Pelletier was at the front of the line at the Lenox Square Apple store.
“I’ve been wanting one for such a long time – I’m the geek in our family – so, here I am,” said Pelletier, who was about to purchase her first Apple product.
“I spent three days doing research on whether I really wanted an iPad or whether I wanted one of the Android tablets, and after three days of research and talking with some people, it was iPad all the way.”
