    Use the poll or post if you think it'll be sometime else.

    One problem could be different time zones....so will it start EVERYWHERE on midnight on the 20th?(And so on...)

    Depends how the stock is managed, if they have it in every timezone I suppose they could open each store at midnight in that timezone.

    Im queuing at my carrier anyway so doesnt matter to me

    Midnight Cupertino time. (8 EST)

    My question is will stores open early? Like 8AM? I think my mall typically opens at 10AM. but I think for these types of events the Apple Store opens early. But I think its not till 9AM.

    Midnight Cupertino is a whole different time than in Germany....I personally hope the orders can be done worldwide at midnight.
    Afaik every countries AppleOnlineStore has its own stock...

    It has been midnight Cupertino time in the past, it probably be the same this year. That would be about 9 AM in Berlin I believe.

    Ya that's tough. So do they allot so many phones to each time zone? Each time zone should get the same chance to get one before ship times slip to 1-2 weeks, etc.

    Imagine in the US if the east coast starts ordering and 3 hours later when it's midnight on the west coast ship times are 2-3 weeks? :eek:

    It's gotta be midnight Cupertino.

    That was my thought process as well, people in New York will get it asap, while Californians will be stuck with long waits.
