iPhone availability

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Anybody catch that comment made by Steve about the iPhone being available on June 29th at 6PM?
Why 6PM?
Anybody have any clue as to why they wouldn't start selling it when the stores open?

All the better to get plenty of filming of the lines during the day for 6PM news. it will also be easier to do crowd control during normal business hours, rather than hiring people to be up when they should be asleep. Bad decisions are often made in those midnight and dawn lineup situations. Steve doesn't want xBox/PS3 midnight parking lot jackings/muggings, so do it at a reasonable hour and have the best of all worlds.
