Well, as fun as that sounds, I don’t think I’ll be doing that. I do intend on getting mine tomorrow, long line or not. :)

There will be people waiting overnight. Many Apple consumers are very passionate about Apple products.

Yes, I assume there will be people waiting in line. Not me. I’ve had the original since day one and Im still happy with it.

Nope. I can’t even upgrade on AT&T until November since I just got a 3G in March.

The line started on Thur afternoon in NYC 5 Ave store. I think the line in Tokyo started around the same time. Go figure! I am getting mine from a Fedex guy before 3pm on Friday.

It’s much easier to get one in person, by waiting in line—at least there will be someone to talk to, you won’t be all alone in front of your computer for hours on end.

@LexWordsmith I like being alone in front of my computer for hours. It gives me a chance to fluther.
