Pre release that is. I was really hoping Apple would handle the 3G release the same way they did the iPads launch by allowing for reserves at Apple stores. Just got off the phone with David who is a sales specialists at Apple Inc and gave me the low down. Seemed there were a few complaints over how launch day went with the whole two line process. Whatever, seems like I have a decision to make now as to whether I go ahead and order online and wait or take a risk by showing up at my Apple Store around lunch time and see if I can snag one. Strange how Apple has just released a Press Release in regards to the release date. I wonder if they are going to keep this low key? Oh and for anyone who wants to verify this just call Apple and ask to speak to a sales specialists and maybe mention it's iPad related.
