I'm heading over there tomorrow afternoon. I'm going to work in the morning, but I plan to be there around 2pm.

Good to know I won't be the only one there! I actually don't have to work tomorrow, so I'm heading over around noon to see how things are looking.

I have planned all of this time to be there tomorrow. Mann I don't know. I think I'm ordering tax free from the military exchange online because the px/bx's won't have them tomorrow. I think I better stay home or that credit card is coming out.

I am hoping for some updates to this thread later today so I can make my plans.

Me too. I've been watching the other cities' threads to try and get some idea of the situation :o I originally planned to get there by 2pm, but I'm wondering if I need to arrive earlier.

I usually go to Tysons for launches, but I am thinking I may do Pentagon City instead this time. Anyone know how fast they move here? I really hope the line isn't crazy by then already.

Problem is this store is always packed. I haven't been there for a launch so not sure how much worse it can get.

I'll probably be heading there in the next hour or so. I'll post an update on how things are looking.

Seeing as how I want the AT&T version, I think I will try the Potomac Yards store first. If they don't have them I will hit up the apple store.

I can't see Best Buy. The line is probably a little over 30 people now.

Are they giving any hints to stock levels? Any idea if the ATT store upstairs has a line?

Thanks for the updates. I honestly didn't expect long lines for this. I guess I underestimate the power of the iPad 2.

They aren't giving any hints as to stock levels. The AT&T folks walked by an hour or so ago to answer questions about the 3G plans, but I don't know the line situation at their store.

Probably a good 40 people in line now.
