“Judging from the early videos, iPad 2 mania may be even more fevered in Australia and New Zealand than it is in the U.S.,” Philip Elmer-DeWitt reports for Fortune.
MacDailyNews Take: We have multiple reports from U.S. readers about lines for iPad 2 that exceeded 100 people in front of small and medium-sized Mall-bound Apple Retail Stores today or nearly two weeks after launch. We’d call that pretty fevered, but the Aussies are certainly having a fun time and giving the U.S. iPad 2 fans a run for their money.
P.E.D. continues, “The first customer in line at Apple’s Sydney store, seen here at right, camped out for 53 hours to buy his second iPad 2 (he picked one up two weeks ago in Boston.)”
