Does this mean a new product will be available for purchase or do they typically do this even for announcements?

Typically this is for product updates. Especially since it's right before an announcement....

Woo hoo!

UK store went down whilst I was trying to add express checkout options. They'd better not open pre-orders immediately, before I've managed to enable this! That would be very annoying! Knew I should have done it earlier!

Yeah, that figures. Usually happens around this time. Can't wait to see it when it comes back up after the keynote this afternoon.

Please, please, please let this indicate online pre-ordering. I don't care if it is release day delivery or in-store pick up.

I just want to buy today and not worry about launch crowds.

If they allow pre-ordering, I may just forego getting it at Best Buy (I have over 600 bucks in Reward Zone certificates and gift cards), and order through the Apple Store.

Don't get your hopes up.

They did the same thing last year, also about 3 hours ahead of the event. No preorders then, so the store being down really doesn't suggest anything one way or the other.

I know - but for some reason I think they might this year. Even if it's not today, I just want to pre-order from Apple.

I have hopes that they will have more inventory at launch this time around.
