IPad launch, first images from Fifth Avenue – Macitynet.it
The anxiety effect, one of the typical feelings that affects Apple enthusiasts when a new product is launched that forces interminable queues and probably not even understandable to most people, seems to be reduced at the launch of the iPad. This is what he seems to be able to say a few hours after the opening of the sales of the new device, judging from the first images that arrive from Fifth Avenue in New York.
Our journalists, punctually lined up from seven in the morning local time, found several dozen people waiting, some of whom had arrived on the spot since night, others since dawn. A discreet and perhaps even important number for other types of events that are not the launches of Apple products, but nothing comparable with the thousands that had camped at the launch of the iPhone EDGE and also of the iPhone 3G. The reason for the reduction of the queue, in fact, in the very reduced anxiety effect. The reservation has put the minds of most fans who know that they will have their iPad without staying in the cold one (or more) nights since there is the guarantee of delivery of the device for all those who arrive in the shop by 15 In addition to this there is also the guarantee of delivery to the iPad comfortably at home by Saturday morning for most of the American territory. All factors that have contributed to render useless the present containment apparatus based on barriers and policemen set up in front of the Apple Store.
In the video below, shot with an iPhone (others will come in better quality), at 7.30 local time, you have a look at what is happening in New York. Soon also an image gallery.
