    Possibly I will be. Haven't really decided yet if I want to do the fanboy thing and try and snag one on the morning or just wait a week or two and get it delivered to me instead. I am curious about how much of a crowd it will draw in Perth though.

    Good to see there isn't that much response yet .

    I'm from the Netherlands and sold my iPhone 3G last Saturday so I am without a phone right now. Really want the 4S badly (and need it :P). I'm probably lining up around 6am. Anybody knows how it was last year, during the launch of the iPhone 4? I need to be at work at 9.30/10am so I hope that it isn't to crowded at 6am.

    Not sure how it works over there in Perth — but for us Sydney folk, we’ve been lining up at around 3–4am for a swift get-in-and-get-out by around 9am.

    Of course, this depends on the store that you go to, and the “reception” for the launch…

    For iPhone 4, I got to Hay St around 3am and was with a few fellow mactalkers in the first 30 people. With this launch I was hoping it'd be less intense though according to another forum named after a popular washing machine, people are planning on arriving similar time this year round.

    So it'll be 4amish for me and hopefully in and out before 8.30

    I was there at 6am last year and didn't get out until after 11

    Having lined up for the iPhone 3, the iPhone 4, the iPad 2 and the opening of the Perth Apple Store, I'm going to give it a miss. I don't really have to have it as soon as it's released (be honest, who does? REALLY?). So I'll wait till the hubbub's died down, then just sign up with Telstra anyway.
    The status quo ain't what it used to be.
