iPad 2 Malaysia Launch Coverage. They Queue All Over Again. [Photos]

So today (29.4.2011) marks the launch date of the 2nd generation of the Apple tablet in Malaysia. Many people have been live tweeting about the queues using the hashtag #iPad2Malaysia.

Here’s a quick post with some photos I gathered from different sources of queues at the various major Apple Reseller outlets around KL.

    Got my ipad 2 at Epic at Cyberjaya (lim kok wing uni). Went out during lunch time (around 12.30) and got it within 30 minutes of queuing. Was back in time to office for work.

    Unbelievable that ppl need to queue overnight.

  • Since the 3rd Gen iPad launched, iPad 2 price has dropped by $100. Yey!
