    If you are planning to visit your local Apple store on the 9th let us know where you will be. I myself live in Manchester so have the luxury of either the Trafford or Arndale Centre - there is free parking at the Trafford so I will most likely be there.

    What say you?

    There's a new Authorised reseller opening in my town just before the launch, and i've just got a job there, so i'll be at work :mad:

    But on the plus side, i get to show off my iPhone to people AND get paid for it! :D

    I don't live near an Apple store :( and to be honest have not been to an Apple store before. Its only since the iPhone was announced early this year I have become a big fan of Apple.

    Anyway I'm about 2 and a half hours hours drive to the Sheffield Apple Store and am hoping to visit on the 1st Nov when me and my mates pass through. But I will be at my local O2 store to get my iPhone. Would love to be at an Apple store for the launch but just a tad too far.

    It's hard to tell whether the queuing will be just as mental as our American counterparts - I guess we will know nearer the time.

    I'll be at Trafford too - seems to be a popular choice (plus it has the benefit of an o2 store and Carphone warehouse - both within viewing distance of the Apple Store :p)

    I'll either be wearing my Diggnation shirt or one of my Iron Maiden numbers if anyone is feeling sociable enough to say hola.

    well i seem to be the only one going to the southampton store so hopefully there will be no queue! saying that only 11 people have voted so far.

    BTW excellent idea for a poll! have been trying to figure out where people will be going

    15 days, 18 hours, 53 minutes to go :D

    What time are you guys turning up? i just cant see there being mass queues like in the US, i dont wanna turn up super early to find nobody there, but dont want to turn up to find a massive queue and be at the back!

    I cant realy see people lining up outside an o2 shop? i may be wrong!

    Be sure once you guys in the UK get your iPhone you post many pictures and reviews so the people in america know what the iPhone looks like.




    LOL.

    You should have added two more options, o2 Store or Carphone Warehouse.

    i would go to the solihull store, but i live in a small town so there won't be much crowd at the o2 store, and if there is, there is a carphone warehouse opposite.

    None of the above are my first choice - one of the O2 or CPW shops in Wimbledon will do me. If not, I'll head to Regent Street on the Saturday morning, hence the selection.

    I may be a touch more hardcore and turn up at 3, unless the news starts reporting queues a day early in which case I will be there asap.

    gtfo plz ;)

    The poll is just for Apple Stores, the results would be skewed if all O2 and Carphone Warehouse stores were consolidated into single options. :)
