    So I just saw on the Morning Show that there are people already lining up in Sydney.

    Anyone lining up at the Perth Apple Store yet?

    I'm ordering 64gb 3G in white as a contingency plan in case I can't get one in store tomorrow.

    Store is still up, sort of expected it to go down by now.

    Yeah, I'm doing the "order online as a contingency" thing...

    Yeah I would've thought that ordering within the first minute of launch would get us a delivery closer than a month away, hopefully we will see that shipping date move forward. Otherwise I'll try my luck at a local Apple reseller (I'm not in a city with an official store) when they get stock in and cancel my online order.

    The things we do...

    Just ordered a 32Gb WiFi one at 12:24am. Not really happy with the 2-3 week wait though. maybe JB HiFi will come good :p

    Wait time is a bit poor. Makes me wish I could get some sleep back. Will also be checking resellers tomorrow if I can get a chance, otherwise will be waiting.

    You'd be bummed right now if you'd got up at 1am to place your order...still not available to purchase...just that brief window around 12.25am.

    Can't imagine they'd restrict numbers sold via online, just push out delivery times instead.

    FYI - after 14 hours since online launch in Australia, the Apple Online Store shipping time now shows as 3-4 weeks.

    It has to do with the demand worldwide and not just Australia. It also shows that in every online Apple Store :)
