A Neasden man queued for more than 31 hours to become one of the first people in London to get their hands on Apple’s latest iPad.
Dipak Varsani started queuing at 1am yesterday to become the first person in line to buy the third version of the tablet computer.
The 21-year-old student was one of hundreds of Apple fans who camped through the night so they could bag the much-sought after gadget.
Mr Varsani said: “I am very excited, I have been following this since it was announced, all the rumours and everything.

The latest model, which has a higher resolution screen than previous models and a five megapixel camera with auto focus and auto exposure, ranges in price from �399 to �659.
Despite competition from cheaper rivals the iPad remains the most popular tablet computer.
Apple has sold more than 55 million iPads since its launch in 2010, including 40 million last year.
For many customers, visiting the store in person - instead of ordering online - gives them a chance to meet other die-hard Apple fans.
