Today Apple launched the iPad in seven countries including the Netherlands, the country where I live. As a person who likes gadgets I was looking forward to getting an iPad myself. But I would never have thought that I would hold one in my hands on launch day.
In the morning various news sites on the Internet talked about long lines at the doors of the Apple stores and other official Apple resellers like MediaMarkt. But around noon, Dutch site Bright mentioned that numerous stores still had a lot of iPads in stock. So I decided to drive to Amsterdam to try and get one. It turned out that Bright was right: the store where I bought my iPad had dozens in stock. iPads of every type were still available. And I didn’t even have to get in line to get one! Lucky me!
Now if you will please excuse me. I have some apps to check out…! 😉
