Position number four in new iPad queue for sale on eBay

Want to be fourth in the queue at the London Regent Street Apple Store? Get bidding

Do want to be fourth in the queue for the new iPad at the London Regent Street Apple Store?

The number four position in the queue for the new iPad is up for sale on eBay with the seller claiming that he isn't an Apple fan and hadn't even realised he was taking his place in the queue for the new iPad.

The seller, se7enthheaven, hasn't been active as a seller on eBay since 2007 and as a result has a 0% Positive Feedback rating. At the time of writing 13 bids had got the bidding to 76 pounds. {Editor: Does anybody else think some Apple fanatics are just mad!].

"The queue outside the store is already 300 long. I took my place by mistake in the queue two days ago not realising it was the queue for the new Apple iPad 3 to be released in UK on 16th March. I don't require the position now as I am not an Apple fan and am therefore putting it up for sale to the highest bidder," the item's description reads.

"The winning bidder must pay withing 3 hours of the auction end and take up their position in the queue by 08:00 [GMT] Friday 16th March, 2012. Buyer must make their own provisions for any overnight stay should they decide to take up the position earlier. A cup of coffee and a muffin will also be greatly appreciated upon arrival. A sleeping bag (used) can be provided for £30 (not included in the auction)."

Queuing began earlier this week and Macworld has already been down to the store to chat with a few of the people in the queue. We've just heard from Apple today that the new iPad will go on sale from 8am GMT.
