    I know it's not for sale but do Apple Stores generally put the phones on display before release day, or do we have to wait until Friday to see one in person?

    Nope. I went into a corporate store today to get a SIM for my razr and didn't see one.

    No, but it would be a good idea to have them available a week early where people can see them and preorder if they want after they're announced.
    Shouldnt be that hard.

    I wonder what the logic is with this? Seems like they could generate lots of traffic between now and Friday. Then again, maybe that is the reason.

    Apple products are usually displayed on their release date.

    Apple never advertises products (in-store) that you can't buy yet.

    I see. I have to wait for my wife to get her hair done close to an apple store and I was wondering if I should stop by. I guess not. Bummer.

    It'd be bad business to show off stuff on display before they launch. On launch day you can expect to see them, along with hundreds of people handling them to demo it out. I'll have to wait a few weeks for the storm to end so I can get one, Best Buy was super packed and didn't want to put money into something that I'd probably never seen for a few weeks. I've had the 4 for over two years now, I can wait a few more weeks.

    You went into a corporate Apple store to get a sim for your razor? I highly doubt that.

    I wonder how much that iPhone 5 is worth if someone stole it from the store. ;)

    The real question would be; was that money worth making? I guess big bubba would help you decide quite easily. :p
