The quest

The iPad launches tomorrow. You may have missed that because Apple has been really quiet about it. In a gonzo, ker-azy journalistic exercise—something I imagine Hunter S Thompson might have done if he found himself working for a publishing trade magazine—Bookseller senior reporter Graeme Neill and I will be queueing up with regular punters at the crack of dawn to try to buy one at central London Apple and Curry's stores.

We've got pockets full of cash—that can work now—and pockets full of cards and we're hoping to score one. Fingers crossed that the shops won't run out. You can follow our exploits from early in the a.m. at #bookselleriQueue on Twitter.
