Jake Lee gets the first iPad in Britain

A seventeen-year-old student, Jake Lee, became the first Brit to have his hands on the eagerly-anticipated Apple iPad that made its UK debut yesterday.

Jake, who was leading a queue of around 300 people in front of Apple store at Regent Street in London, was listening people screaming Jake! Jake! Jake!

The doors of the store were opened at 8am. Apple workers cheered him and formed a guard of honour for him. When he came out of store with an iPad, Reporters started putting questions.

Long queues were also seen in front of other Apple stores in Britain and eight other countries where the iPad was launched yesterday. Apart from Britain, Apple iPad hit Germany, Italy, Japan, Australia, Canada, Spain, Switzerland and France on May 28th.

Apple iPad, which is equipped with a 9.7-inch high definition LED backlit color screen, allows its users to send e-mails, read digital books, draw pictures and play games.
