Summer is still several months away, so Torontonians will have to wait a bit before they raid their storage units to get their patio furniture. But they may want to grab a few lawn chairs from storage, as a much-anticipated electronic item is finally being made available in the Toronto area.
All across the GTA, hundreds of people are standing and sitting in lengthy lines outside electronic retailers anxiously awaiting the release of Apple’s iPad 2.
While the tablet has already been released in the U.S., this is the first time Torontonians will be able to buy the popular product, which starts at $519.
“I am going to buy two, one for me and one to cover my cost of lining up,” a college-aged student told 680News. People told the station that some are scalping the iPad 2.
People can buy the iPad 2 on Apple.ca, but according to the website, the models are backordered and won’t be available for three to four weeks.
The $519 price for the most basic iPad 2 isn’t the most expensive, but it’s not the cheapest either. According to Reuters, U.S. residents pay the cheapest price at $499, while those in Denmark pay $702 for the same model.
