    Queue start point

    Hi pal, I will be there, gonna be an early one I think, last time I got there at 6am and the scalpers (guys sent to buy up as many iPhones as poss to then sell them on to countries where it hasn't been released yet for profit) where out in force. They are hardcore so don't expect to be near the front of the queue. Queue has been placed either near Starbucks entrance or fraser hart. It won't be any other entrance. I'd look for the queue of scalpers.
    Might see you there.

    Useful info to have, I was planning to get there for 5:45 ish as I need to leave Touchwood by 9am at the very latest!

    FYI, I called Touchwood today and they said they would have a que in the carpark and a que at the Mill Lane entrance this time..

    Hope your not after a gold one, there isn't any at all, they haven't supplied stock to any store in the UK it's saying on mac rumours main page.
    Post a pic for the people think of coming down
