hi, I preordered them, but I don't wanna wait until the 29th, but want them for xmas. Do you think with the public announcement made that they'll be available in stores next week- do they mean on Monday?? What day are you gonna start to hit the stores? I live in Germany. With the ip7+ JB it was in fact really faster to go to the store and get it there than ordering it online - by a whopping 6 weeks!
