We'll leave you with a few choice quotes from Mr. Packer on why exactly he's doing such a thing for such a product:
Question: "So, nobody took your place?"
Packer: "No, nobody... nobody."
Question: "So, you are the first one?"
Packer: "So far, yep yep!"
Question: "So you're going to be the first one to buy one, also?"
Packer: "Yep, yep!"
Question: "Do you have any number?"
Packer: "Huh?! Yes, yes. Well, first come, first serve! They don't give you a number, you queue up for a number."
Question: "Do you have something in your bag, to eat or drink?"
Packer: "Just mainly a change of clothes. Nothing to eat, nothing to drink."
Question: "Why do you want [the iPad] so desperately?"
Packer: "Because... it's like a mini laptop! I mean, you just... you know, click it on, just like you click the iPhone on. And you don't have to open it up, and you know, go through, you know, go through everything. "
Question: "So, you need to have it?"
Packer: "Yes! "
