OK, this will probably be my last post about the iPhone. Well, at least until tomorrow.
I’m just curious… who among you is planning on actually buying one? Will it be the 4GB or the 8GB model? Are you going to try your luck waiting in line at an Apple / AT&T store tomorrow, or just order it online? If waiting in line, how early are you willing to go?
Please, do tell.
Personally, I will almost assuredly be buying an 8GB model. My super-fabulous girlfriend gave me Apple gift cards for Christmas, and my birthday, specifically for the iPhone. Even though they only announced them in January, I’ve been waiting for at least 5 years now. I’m not sure if I’ll be standing in line or not. I’m going to head down to my local Apple store tomorrow afternoon and check out the situation.
By the way, Apple will start online sales at 6:00pm (PDT) tomorrow. Unlike the physical stores, the east coast doesn’t get a head start. We’ll all be shopping at the same time.
If you are planning on buying the iPhone at one of Apple’s retail stores, either tomorrow or next week, you may want to bookmark Apple’s iPhone availability page. Apple will update it every evening, and you can theoretically get accurate information after 9:00pm, on if your local store has them in stock.
UPDATE (2:20pm): My girlfriend just called. She walked by the Apple Store while at lunch. The line is already forming. I bet it will be massive by tomorrow night. :(
