“Scotland went iPad mad yesterday, as tech fans across the country flocked to the shops to get their hands on Apple’s latest device when it went on sale in the UK for the first time,” Craig Brown reports for The Scotsman.
“Seasoned computer enthusiasts and amateurs came out in force, queuing overnight, as the tablet-style device finally became available, having already been delayed because of high demand in America,” Brown reports.
“In Aberdeen, queues began to form at 1am, as people vied to be the first in to get their hands on the device… In Edinburgh, there was a similar rush,” Brown reports. “The device has been a runaway hit.
