Today, the mythical iPad finally saw the light of day (for common folk — dudes like Stephen Colbert and Letterman have had one for a while now), and being the dutiful journos that we are, we were there, camera in hand.

We talked to folks who had been on line since Thursday, iPad revelers and people who were there to pick up ‘Pad for family and friends overseas. (We also caught up with pro line-sitter Greg Packer, the first in line for the product.)

Check out the video below for our coverage from New York’s Fifth Avenue Apple Store. It was like a full-on rock concert, my friends — without all the music.
