We have been chatting to people in the queue outside the Apple Stores on Regent Street and Covent Garden, here is a selection of our favourite photos. Read what the people in the iPad queue had to say here

If you have photos from outside the Apple Stores around the UK, send them to us. And if you have just spent the night queuing to buy a New iPad, tell us about it in our forum here.

We spoke to people about what iPad they were planning to buy, what they were going to do with their old iPad, and even chatted to a few people who had already purchased an iPad from PC World at 12.01am in the morning of the launch.

Here are our photos.
