The hunt for the iPad 2 leads to Houston

Apple retail store London.jpgOnly a diehard cynic would connect this year’s upturn in European travellers to the two NPRA conferences (oil and chemicals) with the launch of the iPad 2.


Far-fetched you might think, but hark, isn’t that the sound of distant tweeting?


“No sign of an #iPad2 at the Houston Apple store. People were queuing from 4am apparently. Will have to wait for the UK release,” I read on Twitter from a London-based friend now working the parties of the oil NPRA (20-22 March in San Antonio)


Rumours are sweeping the tech team at ICIS that the UK release, scheduled for 25 March, will be delayed or only see a very limited number of the tablets available, but this was denied by Apple today.

    It may not only be i-pad madness as there appears to be similar hype on the launch of latest Nintendo DS 3D model. We must all be mad…..
