I just got back from the Apple Store in SoHo (Manhattan) I was 340 on line and got there at 5:00. I got in the store fairly quickly. I did not buy a iphone (because i have Verizon and i dont have that much money to spend) but they sure had enough iphones to go around for everyone in line. I did manage to play around with the iphone that they had on display.

This is what I've been hearing as Apple had tons in stock. My cousin told me that there were about 150 people in line when the store opened but that they had 200 in stock and that more were coming in tomorrow, so really, no point in waiting. I feel real bad for those people who paid money to buy out the front spots

The videogame industry should learn something from this. Have more of your product in stock on launch day, or at least don't use the stupid tactic of intentionally limiting supply to give false impression of high demand!

I wonder how the eBay auctions are going to do, it looks like a lot of people bought them just to sell them.

Can I link to an auction here? Because I just saw one going for close to $20,000. Absurd to say the least.

eBay is flooded with them. I think some of those sellers how bought a bunch of them might be in for a rude wake up call and will be returning a few.

I don't think linking to something like that would be against any of the rules. I saw that also, there is no way that guy will ever see the $20k.

I was thinking of buying one for that purpose, but when I saw how many were still left as of an hour ago, I know it would be tough to make more than even a little on it, unless people are just really lazy/dumb and don't realize they can pick one up tomorrow or something from their local Apple/AT&T store.

It's kind of like the PS3 situation where the prices fell out on eBay within a week of its release

I didn't get mine. The store I went to only had 40 units and I was # 48 or so. Oh well I ordered it and it might be here in a week or so. :x

Yep. Me and a few people around me were just there for the experience (and to take some pics). Besides, I only started waiting in line at 5. At around 6:30 i was already in the store.

I just waited til Tuesday, checked the Apple availablity widget on their site, then drove to a store that they said had some.

They had 14 left when I bought mine.

No camping, no lines, no fuss.

I was in and out in less than 5 minutes.
