It's a gamble. You might not get the popular "black" "16/32GB" models

Lot of people queuing and then letting their mates in, wasn't this bad last year. Also a lot of scalpers, already been offered 60 to get another for someone!

I've just arrived! Sitting near The Gym! Loads of people hear already. Anyone else now might be struggling to get the iPhone of choice.

----------

And Yes, Good Luck to everyone. Hope you get the iPhone you want!!!

From the highcross worker who is standing on the corner. It's all speculation. At 5.30 the apple staff should come out look at the line and judge what to do.

Sorry to disappoint but I don't think there will be many apple workers there at 5:30 :P
However who knows? They might just be that detirmined (they do work for apple after all)
Best to wait and see...

Update on where the end of the queue is?

Yup I doubt they'll be in early. This is what the highcross worker is saying. Who knows how much he knows?

The line has gone past the gym around a second corner from what I have heard. Not gone to see.
