Lines form for iPad2 in Texas

It looks like the faithful are staking out their prime positions outside an Apple Store in Dallas. A picture showing a tent, set up on McKinney Avenue, just outside the Dallas Apple store is clear evidence that Apple's desire to have lines for the iPad 2 is working. Apple announced last week that there wouldn't be preorders for the new iPad and that the new tablet would be available in stores and online starting this Friday, March 11th, at 5pm. The McKinney avenue location is a temporary storefront while the Knox Street Apple store is undergoing a face lift. But can there really be a line of one?

The scuttlebutt is that Justin Wagoner, is once again staking claim so he can get his iPad 2 first. Wagoner pitched the very same style of tent when the iPhone 4 was announced. And maybe waiting is Justin's style since he seems to have waited for the iPad 2 after seeing the original come out. And with good cause, since the new iPad comes with a dual core A5 processor, dual cameras, faster graphics, iOS 4.3, and support for both GSM and CDMA networks. Good things can come to those who wait.
