Apple's new iPhone 3G S launches tomorrow Friday, June 19th.




Preparations for iPhone 3G S launch in Oakbrook, IL
Apple's retail stores are opening at 7 a.m. in all time zones to accommodate the launch. MacRumors readers are organizing meetups at retail stores around the world. The first lines are already forming in Tokyo and New York. Meanwhile, the Oakbrook, IL Apple store is preparing for large crowds.

AT&T has detailed their launch as well. AT&T stores will also be opening 7 a.m. nationwide. And this year, customers also have the opportunity to buy at Best Buy or Wal-Mart retail stores.

Pre-order customers should begin getting their iPhone 3G S deliveries tomorrow. Those who reserved units at either Apple or AT&T retail stores will be able to visit the stores to pick up their units at any time during business hours. The Washington Post even profiled readers who have been obsessively tracking their iPhone 3G S orders in our forums.

And I, for one, won't be camping out in the rain to get there at 7 a.m. :rolleyes:

I love the photos of the idiots in New York camped out under the black Apple umbrellas already. Someone REALLY needs a life. ;)

Funny how they drop that box around 0:45 :D

Hopefully that's not your iPhone 3GS :p

I'll wait for the iPhone 4G ;)

The way I figure it is that you either don't have a job and therefore can't afford an iphone/service plan, or you have a pretty good job to be able to pay for all that, in which case you would be at work today and not camping out in the rain all day...who are these people who have money and nothing to do on a Thursday?

Kinda cool to see the distribution operation, but it sure offsets a bunch of the attention Apple pays to being green and low impact packaging.

Rocketman
Offsets? Imagine the size or volume of boxes the AT&T distribution center would be receiving and handling for the same number of phones if the Apple packaging had not been streamlined. Instead of 12 phones per box, you get maybe 8, or need a bigger box. Apple is doing their part as much as anyone when it comes to "green" packaging.

Canada EH!!!
That was a lot of freekin' iPhones in the video!!

My wife is going to buy the 32GB Black tomorrow morning. No lineups here in Eastern Canada :D

I bought a 16GB Black last year when they first came out in Canada and the lineup was only 6 people long just before the store opened LOL.

Cheers.
