That's the lucky guy who manage to get himself ahead of the queue. He was there since yesterday around mid-day and is part of a group of aficionados. His name is jake lee, 17 from Essex.

ITProPortal also launched a contest inviting prospective and current iPad owners to get up to £500 worth of iPad accessories (including iPad Apps and Apple iTunes Credit) simply by submitting the list of accessories they'd like to have. Simples!!
