    Anyone going to be there for the launch? What sort of time are people going to turn up?

    I'm at high cross now
    And about 85th in line arriving at 11:30. At least another 8 behind me now.

    Arriving late is a no go I think for getting one today

    To wrap up...

    People were joining the queue at 5pm still, stocks were extremely limited by that point and only a handful of specific models remained.

    Overall the queue was well over 200 growing steadily all afternoon.
    Staff were great, chatty and friendly and dishing out StarBucks coffee and bottled water all afternoon

    Here a quick video of the moment of the curtain drop which i saw thanks to a timely reshuffle of the queue


    I was 80th in line and managed to get everything i wanted and was out of the store and on my way home by about 5:45pm

    Fairly well organised and would definitely consider going there again for a launch

    the way launch was handled at some stores here in the US was a nightmare! :eek:
