    I assume that Short Pump's Apple Store is going to be the most popular location. Not sure AT&T's stores will get as much stock.

    yep, I'll be there. I hope the activation issue doesn't mean we'll be there all day.

    I am about 90% sure I am going to get one, but I don't know if I'm going to jump right on the bandwagon the 1st day. I may wait for the reviews to come out beforehand, and get it the week after :D


    If there is a party at the Apple store, maybe I'll come anyway :cool:

    I spoke with the GM at the Apple store in Short Pump who advised that they will not allow people to line up until 6 AM. Not sure what their plan is for stopping people from lining up before then is though.

    I'll probably stop by the Apple Store at Short Pump on my way in to work. Unless the line is seriously moving I won't be able to stay around.

    It reminds me of last year

    I was talking to folks at the AT&T store on Midlothian. They got something like 25 phones and ran out early on. Now they have staff on 12 hr shifts sitting around. I hope that ShortPump has some left tomorrow AM.

    I got back from a 11am visit to Short Pump and it's still a very long line. I'd say a solid 100 people were still in line. I walked up to the front to see if I recognized anyone waiting still from the morning, and sure enough, I saw someone almost in the store who was about 6 spots up from me from 7:30am this morning. That really sucks.

    I'll probably swing by there again later this afternoon to see what the line looks like. I'd like to get one, but because of work today, I can't wait in line for hours on end. Hopefully I get lucky this afternoon.

    Anyone there now? Know what the line looks like?
