After we have confirmed that the iPad 2 will be launching at 29th of this month with limited stock, we have decided to queue overnight in order to secure our spot for the iPad 2.
We have choose Machine Mid Valley as our targeted outlet, as they allow overnight queue infront of the store.
When we arrived around 10pm, a friend from www.ipadmalaysialabs.com has already sitting down at spot No1. :)
There was around 10 of us staying over the midnight, and the line started to build longer as it approaches the morning.
Finally around 9am, Machines started to open their shop and also some photo taking session.
And finally we got our iPad 2 at 10am :)

Apple seems to have upgraded most of their Retail Stores including the use of iPads as interactive kiosks for their customers. As noted in MacPricesAustralia , what this interactive iPad does is,
- iPads display product prices & information for products.
- iPads display product features, prices and lets you compare between models.
- Use the iPad to ask a specialist to come to you.
For us, this is how Product Catalog should look like in the future,
- Save Paper, save environment
- Interactive Catalog
- Product Details can be updated instantly
- Save Printing Cost

iPad 3 rumors seem to be ramping up. DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim now tells CNet that Apple has started production of a 2048x1536 resolution iPad 3 display.
"It's happening--QXGA, 2048x1536. Panel production has started [for the next-generation iPad]. There's three suppliers," Richard Shim, an analyst at DisplaySearch, said in an interview today. Shim confirmed other reports that cite three companies, Samsung, Sharp, and LGD.
DisplaySearch is research firm focused specifically on the display supply chain market and related industries. The same claims have been previously made by Digitimes who also cited the same three suppliers.
We've already seen evidence from Apple that they've been working on resolutions of that size in versions of their iOS applications. Most recently, background images of exactly 2048x1536 were found in early builds of iOS 5. In comparison, the current iPad carries a resolution of 1024x768. The iPad 3 is expected to be released sometime in the first half of 2012.
