    Haven't checked with the store, but it seems like all stores will be from the apple site... from last years thread, it seems the centre is open 24/7 and there were hundreds in the queue around 5.30...

    "nano sim" - good point, keep forgetting about that :(

    I think I might bring a folding chair and a bowl of cereal - a real camping trip :)

    The lady over the phone said it's open 24/7 so I presume all entrances are open 24/7...

    The entrance by the food courts always open, and I was worried about falling asleep nothing a few red bulls can't sort

    Wow. The store there usually has a decent amount of stock for their launches but I don't think the queue has ever been that long this early...(when I went for the iPad launch I got there at 3am and was only like 15th).

    The security people won't let you move ahead the queue and yes it is near John Lewis or beyond it I can't see.
