    Apple has never announced an official release time for either MobileMe or 2.0 for UK/US or any other country in the world. And we currently have conflicting statements regarding the release of 2.0 software, so just sit tight and by this friday evening all will be here for us.

    Not supposedly, it's been confirmed that MobileMe will complete it's transition worldwide from 6PM Wednesday (Today) - 12AM Thursday PDT.

    In Apple's MobileMe Support Q&A Page, it does say that the 2.0 Software Upgrade is required for MobileMe use on an iPhone/ iPod touch, so there have been many rumors of iTunes 7.7 + 2.0 Software launching before MobileMe completes it's transition.

    It states on the .Mac home page that MobileMe will be available once the update is complete which is between 6pm and 12am Pacific Time Tonight

    I can see MobileMe being released first. I am sure Apple wants to make sure that the website is up and running fully. I don't expect Apple to throw the switch for 2.0 or iTunes until Friday or once the first iPhones legally go on sale to public.

    To answer the OP's question, MobileMe will launch between 2AM - 8AM Thursday, so it should be active when you wake tomorrow morning (providing thats after 8AM).

    Well, if Apple keep to their stated time of launch, then yes it will occur within the period I posted previously here in the UK.
