    Ok folks, where y'all heading and when?

    I am planning to be at the Corte Madera store in the wee morning hours. Not sure exactly when, depends on how/if sleep takes me. It will be a tad chilly, so cover up!

    Stonestown, I made a thread about it but it's on page 2 now. Gonna check at 12:30 am, expecting big crowds since no preorder :/

    I just talked to someone at the Corte Madera store. Nobody in line yet.

    How do these malls handle folks lining up early? If I were a store owner, I wouldn't want a line of folks with chairs and sleeping bags camping out in front of my entrance, or anywhere in the mall for that matter. It's not exactly conducive to a pleasant shopping experience.

    That's kinda surprising. Besides Palo Alto and perhaps Los Gatos, I'd have predicted One Sansome would get an early line.

    I kind of thought there would be. The staff at the store seemed surprised that there wasn't a line yet also.

    I'll be headed to the corte madera store later this evening or early am. Maybe I'll see some of you there

    :)

    Cheers

    That will change very quickly in the next few hours. I was thinking about going tomorrow morning at 6am and see how the line is.

    Because of how short supplies are and that I have a specific version I want. (64gb gold) I suspect I will be SOL and better off waiting the week for it.

    I think that, even at these prices, there is a lot of appeal to the Mainland Chinese market.

    50 people at the union square store ? Not surprised, I figured once people tried to order online and got screwed they would head to the store.

    I heard one of the employees say that most phones have been claimed. They are handing out tickets. Gold went to the first few people inline. At the corner is where silver sold out.

    I am here in line if you wanna say hi. I'm the dude in the purple hair.
