    Certainly not!

    I went to the Covent Garden store today and the employee(s) I spoke to said that the store will 'most probably' open at 8am instead of 9am next Friday for the launch *g*

    What time were you planning on arriving? :)

    I was going to get the first tube to Covent garden which gets in at 5:44. The bus is always an option though...

    I'm beginning to consider not going to bed at all, going to my meagre 2hours of lectures from 9-11am (depending on whether I have my iPad 2 in hand, I'm really not bothered if I miss them) and then get some sleep in the afternoon.

    So yeah, 4am would be good for me unless you wanted to get there a bit earlier? I imagine most people would be getting the first tube in actually...

    I think it'll depend on the weather for me.

    If it's mild enough, then an all-nighter would be pretty good epic for my first time queuing for a launch :D

    I'm definitely going to be there by 5am though. Most likely in a white hoody and trying to keep warm.

    I will most likely be in my iCaptain-cosplay... and this Allnighter really sounds inviting. Let's be the firsts in line! :cool:

    I considering heading to covent garden, but for me depends on whether we get pre-orders for delivery on Friday. If not then the weather. If its raining, I'll just go to my local store I think. Its inside a shopping center, so wont get wet. :)

    hey v66jack, if you check out my link above, i also asked about pre orders and she said they would most likely not be shipping on the friday as couriers delivered iphone 4 too earlier too people (hence it being on a friday no deliveries at weekends which is a bit rubbish!)

    Damn, I'm not going to be able to make a 5pm launch :(

    Guess it'll be a case of waiting until 0001 on Friday morning to order one online.

    Good luck to those of you that do go!
