    Anyone else going to be at the launch at Bull Ring?

    I am planning on it although will be the first time at an Apple launch. Say the store opens at 9am, what time would be best to be there for?

    Thanks!

    Been at Bull Ring and at Solihull for most of the major Product launches in the last few years.

    Solihull store opening - 8.30am and was 11th
    iPhone Launch - 7am and was 13th
    iPhone 3G launch - 5.30am and was 4th. (the o2 Store only had 7 units)
    iPhone 3Gs launch - 9am and was 3rd.

    iPad launch, Anything before/around 7/7.30am will be fine from my experiences.

    I was thinking of standing there in the queue with everyone else, then getting mine out of my bag hehe.

    I think I'll be going there tomorrow, I want the case and the camera connector

    Any other takers? I'm wondering what their stock will be... I might aim for getting there for 7am - They confirmed an 8am opening?

    If Clinton cards are still doing the offer, you might be able to get 2x £15 itunes giftcards for £20 from the Bull Ring Clintons, if you're thinking of getting some more apps!

    So? Anyone there yet? Much of a queue? Just about to head in myself. :-s

    Answering my own question... around 50 people here.

    Already have a 16GB model but queueing for one for the parents. Just got 45 mins to decide if I give them mine and get the 32GB model for myself. :-s

    About 60 in the queue consistently since about 8am. Slow going queue as they're moving about 5 every 8-10 minutes.
