A spokesperson from PC World has confirmed that the store on Tottenham Court Road, London, will be open at 12.01am this morning and that up to 600 New iPads will be on sale there. See also New iPad review.

Other PC World stores will be open around the country offering similar opportunities for iPad fans who don't want to wait until Apple opens it's doors at 8am on Friday morning.

We have been speaking with people in the queue outside the Regent Street Apple Store who are thinking of leaving the queue to buy iPads at the PC World store, and then selling them to the people at the back of the Apple queue.
