iPad 2 Scalping In New York

A couple weeks ago when the lackluster iPad 2 was announced, many would have never thought that the iPad 2 would be sold out with a month wait from the Apple Online store. I guess maybe more people held off on a tablet decision/purchase to see what Apple had to offer. Now according to the NY Post...there are scalpers waiting for new iPad 2 arrivals ahd have bags full of iPad 2's being offered at a 200% markup.

From the NY Post:

An Apple worker inside the store said he didn't like what was going on -- but he couldn't do much about it.

"Listen, we all know what's going on here. I find it sad and disgusting," the worker said. "These people are preventing ordinary folks from getting their hands on an iPad."

Prices for the iPad 2 is ranging from $1700 to $2000 and the scalpers are essentially blocking people from legitimately buying the iPad 2. As more shipments arrive, a good percentage of these purchases will likely be made by the scalping team to keep a corner on the market near the Apple Store at 5th Avenue in New York City.
