    Which is the best Apple launch? I've never been to one.

    When it is announced, I'll be on the phone to Verizon setting up my pre-order and having it shipped to me. No activation fee, no hassles, and free shipping.

    No, because I'll be in CA then, and I'd prefer not to experience CA's sales tax on the unsubsidized price.

    I'm in 2 minds.

    I went to the launch of the i4 at the Regent St store and it was quite an entertaining morning, but if I can pre order online for release day delivery this time around, I'm quite tempted to do that.

    Although I don't want to be at home looking out for the UPS man to pull up!

    I may go for a launch day, in person pick up just to experience the mayhem again, maybe I'll go to Covent Garden this time!

    I was at the Bullring launch for the 4 and it was kind of fun. Got there about 5:30 and as I had reserved was 7th in the que. Good fun meeting people. It was like Macrumors in person. I've not fully decided about the next iPhone yet. I'm looking to get the new iMac when it's released and I'm not sure I can do both. I guess it will depend on the release dates.

    White City for the iPhone 4 launch - never again. Was there for over 4 hours.
    This time it's home delivery all the way ;)

    In person? No

    Via the online store? No

    This time around the phone is too unremarkable.

    I'll be using my upgrade for a truly new smartphone yet to be officially announced.

    Home delivery for sure. I had my iPhone 4 before so many others. Maybe even early IIRC. I'm in no hurry either way, and I've never been to a store launch (camp out). Perhaps it would be fun?

    It boggles my mind that people like you expect Apple (or any other company) to reinvent the wheel. How much can you really change a design. If you keep waiting for a "truly new smartphone", you are going to be waiting for a LONG time!
