    I should be there around 5:45-6am. Not queued for a major Apple release before (other than the iPad 4 at Covent Garden in London, but there was only around 40-50 people for that).

    I'm thinking of coming through from Edinburgh.

    Have any of you been to Buchanan st. on launch day before? If i make it in at about 10/11am do you think there'll still be stock of the 5s? Surely there will...

    Having read about Australia trying to order the iPhone 5s and being shown delivery dates of 7-10 days from the get go, I will probably be showing up at Buchanan Street around 4-4:30am.

    Any idea how big the line is? I last saw it at 20:30 and it was about 10 people or so.

    ----------

    When I asked the Genius a couple of days ago he reckoned that anyone who was in the line at 8am would probably get one. But he wasn't sure about anyone arriving after that. That was just his guess though, he said he didn't know how many were arriving in the store.

    Will be heading down around 5:45'ish to 6.

    Anyone know what Braehead is like around launch times? Do they let you queue inside or.....

    I'd like to know that too. Can't decide whether to go to Braehead or Buchanan St! I think the latter will have more stock, but also more customers...

    They've just moved everyone to the front of the store with the barriers. Queue doesn't look so bad anymore, but there's a fair few people behind me now...

    16GB sold out at Buchanan Street. The guys with the tickets are roughly only 1/4 of the way through the queue. :S
