Regent Street iPad lines

Apple once again caused a frenzy among consumers Friday, as people across the globe lined up to buy the company’s latest product, the iPad. But with demand strong, Apple continues to face supply issues.

Profiling the launch day excitement, Reuters reported Friday that hundreds of people were in lines in London, Munich, Paris and Tokyo. It noted that there remains concern that Apple may not be able to supply enough of the device.

Looks like absence (or on this case delay) has made the heart grow fonder -for everyone waiting on an iPad in the nine countries where the iPad launched today: Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the U.K. 

The delayed international launch does not seem to have dampened enthusiasm or demand for the device – now the big question is how the supply side of things is going to hold up.

If you’re in one of the nine launch countries, let us know how your iPad acquisition efforts have gone today, and what you think of your latest new gadget.
