iPad 2 Lines Snake Outside Apple Stores (PHOTOS)

On Friday, Apple released the iPad 2, a thinner, lighter, faster successor to the iPad.

When the original Apple tablet launched, throngs of customers queued up for hours (in some cases, days) outside Apple stores around the U.S., waiting to get their hands on the new device. This year, some fans again showed up days in advance to be the very first with a new iPads, while others auctioned off their spots in line to the highest bidder.

We've got some early photos of people lining up outside the SoHo Apple store in New York City, but we want to see your photos. If you captured images of iPad 2 lines, email them to us at or upload them using the "Add a slide" tool (below).
