Lines for the launch of the iPad 2 have begun to form in many of the 25 countries where the device will go on sale tomorrow. iFun.de (Translated Link) reports that two men in folding armchairs were camped out the Apple Store in Munich, Germany more than 24 hours before the launch; when asked about the cold night ahead of them, they said they were well equipped. According to iTWire, the line outside the Apple Store in Sydney, Australia has now wrapped around the corner and is expected to grow throughout the night, while the first person in line outside Apples Regent Street store in London got there at 7:30 this morning, local time, saying, “I was fourth in the queue for the first iPad, and it was such an amazing atmosphere, I really wanted to be first this time.” The iPad 2 will launch in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, and the UK tomorrow at 5 p.m. local time.

Good for them. Now Americans aren’t the only ones who get to stand in line for hours like idiots only to find that the shelves are bare.
