    I'll be there on Friday, but have no plans for getting up at stupid o'clock ;)

    I plan on going in around 9 or 10am, if they sell out before that, I'll just wait for the next batch.

    I will be at the Metro Centre. Still trying to decide how early I need to be there.

    Anyone know what the queuing process is for the Metro Centre?

    Good question, I wonder if anyone on here has been to a previous launch day at the Metro Centre?

    Would be good to know just how many people were there before 8 at the 4S launch.

    I tweeted the Metro Centre and they replied with:

    "we'll check with security in the morning and get back to you!"

    Once I hear back I will post on here.

    We need a MacRumors secret handshake for Friday morning lol

    Just had confirmation on twitter from the Metro Centre:
    "Red and Yellow main car park and Red and Yellow main doors open at 5am to allow for queuing! Will we see you down there?"

    Found you on twitter, I'll keep a look out for your tweets in the morning.

    I'll either come over fairly early (6ish) if I'm awake, or I'll leave it till after 11 and hope the rush is gone.

    The fact that I'm not fussy about the model or colour will hopefully mean I should still get one.

    Park in the red car park (the one closest to the Apple store). Metro Centre says the car park will be open from 5am

    Amazed by the queue already, I've got about 50-60 in front of me, but the queue disappears into the darkness behind me (probably a couple of hundred people) , I would think anyone not here already will be in for a LONG wait, and will have a good chance of being disappointed.

    But look on the bright side, we have been promised coffee and donuts at 7 :).

    Well, store is open, but moving very slowly. Apple staff need a few cups of coffee to get going.
