    Just called another 3 tesco stores, and all won't be selling at midnight, in fact they say they might not even have stock.

    So must be a local thing....

    I suspect Tesco won't be selling the iPhone 5...!

    I'm really surprised that several retailers (Walmart in the USA, a phone company in Australia) are doing this, given how much Apple like to be in control. Unless this has been agreed, which I find unlikely, I think there'll be a few retailers banned from selling at the next launch or two.

    on the tesco direct page (http://direct.tesco.com/), on the banner image at the top, there are 4 dark gray boxes indicating different banner ads that display over time. wait a few seconds and it changes, or click the 4th box

    I got my new iPad at 12.01 am at Tesco Elgin store. Only two of us waiting there and they had a fair amount of stock they said. Happy times.

    They seemed to have a fair range but I would phone to confirm stock first. I got a 16GB Black WiFi.
