Apple’s iPad 2 goes on sale today at 5 p.m. local time across the United States and lines are already forming.

UPDATE: 5:30 pm ET: Readers tell us of huge lines at Apple Retail Stores. For example, one MacDailyNews reader counted 700+ people in line at Apple Store Crossgates in Albany, NY just before the doors opened at 5pm.
