    The que in the apple shop in Birmingham at 1pm (theyve been open since 9) was about 300 people long +, it's out the door of the bullring shopping centre!! And all those people have pre-ordered it!!

    There's even a que to just go in and look at one...

    Guess I'll see one after the weekend...

    I havent had a real chance to play with it because at work there are lots of grubby little fingers all poised ready to poke and prod it. So I've just kept it away from them all :lol:

    Initial impressions, feels MUCH smaller than the older ones and lighter. Whether it REALLY is *much* smaller well dunno, but it feels it in a good way!

    Screen, well I looked at it and thought yeah its great but then so were the old ones so? Then I displayed photos and started comparing and yeah, the new one looks lovely, detailed and sharp. I havent seen any of the yellow patches people have complained about on some units.

    Camera FAR better :) really pleased about that. Will take some later to really compare. Pretty impressed with the video too!

    Speed feels very very snappy indeed! one guy has a 3G still and it's night and day different to that!!!

    Other than that it's all ios4 stuff that was in 3gs anyway although I may grab imovie to try because apparently it's fantastic.

    The weirdest thing is that design wise it's more like the pre-iphone phones just a slab of phone albeit it thin and yet somehow now everyone oooos at it and says it makes the other ones look old. How did they manage that ? :D

    ok how on earth have some people pre ordered when I was told by both my local stores that was impossible :unsure:

    I'm wondering if I should just let the hype die down before going in

    yeah but mine said they were accepting "under the counter" lists :( it really does seem to depend on the store and how they feel.

    There's a thread on macrumors that said some stores had got over 100 and hardly any queues so there may well be some left depending on the store and its location

    Oh and I do want a review on charge times as my 3G is pretty much an old fashioned corded phone as it is plugged into the wall most of the time :lol:

    Any sign of the built-in advertising that Steve Jobs mentioned in his speech?

    I've noticed a lot of people saying that on the forums :/ mine activated instantly but perhaps that's because it's sim free
