    They didn't have enough units many people where disappointed.


    When got in the shop they was only one model left on the shelf. :-(

    I guess as a small shop they are limited numbers.

    The Mrs and me are planning to queue overnight. Anyone have any advice on what to bring? Thinking camping chairs and an external battery for power.

    Does anyone know where we queue when the Center closes for the night?

    Cheers.

    What time did you get there last year? I ended up going to carphone warehouse as Apple had run out of the 5s. There was no one there so I just walked in and picked the phone I wanted!

    Last Year I got there at about 6.45am. Lets just say the amount of people in front of me was probably about 100. They snaked around the barriers in the shopping centre :L. Sooo thinking of getting there much much much earlier this year!!!

    I've been to four product launches here and the queue has always been formed from the left hand side entrance (H&M).

    I arrived about 5:45 for the 5s launch and there was about 40 people in front of me. They gave tickets out about 6:45 as I recall. I couldn't get my first choice (silver) but they had stock of my second choice (slate). Centre usually opens about 7.00, then they take you through in batches of 10 to queue outside the store. Free Costa coffee once you are inside.

    Would recommend a chair for sure!

    Good luck

    I spoke to a guy who was about 6th or 7th in the queue last year and he got there just before midnight. Not sure what time the guy at the front arrived.

    Not going myself this year. Had to preorder due to work commitments tomorrow. Hope you all get what you are after.

    Im tempted to go now, I personally pre-ordered with Phones4U and that obviously went wrong, so now I'm thinking of getting the first train tomorrow/last train tonight to queue up. Don't really want to wait 3-4 weeks after ordering around a week ago :(

    So who else is in the queue tonight? What do you think your chances are of getting the phone/phones you want?

    Only a few hours to go.
