    No midnight launch in Melbs... shame, but good to know.

    What a shocker :P

    On a side note, I'm annoyed there's nothing in Melbourne. The Optus store that's having the midnight opening in Sydney isn't even a company store.

    C'mon Melbourne Optus resellers. Do something for us on the right side of the VIC/NSW border

    (and I mean Melbourne :P)

    This has been discussed elsewhere. Optus as a company only actually owns 3 stores. One in Brisbane, one in Sydney (North Sydney) and one in Melbourne (300 Collins Street). All other Optus World stores are franchised.

    Anyone going to the midight launch (or even the early morning ones) better be ready to brave the weather It's goona be a long cold line up.

    My local Optus said several customers have stated they will be camping on the door step thursday night. As the Optus store is external from the Glen shopping center.

    I'll probably get to George Street 10ish I reckon. That may change if I see a line up before I leave work @ 6.

    The store is open til 8 for regular trading so I don't see any point in queuing outside an open shop. I won't get there till after 11. Hopefully they will have enough stock to meet the demand of the people who have paid their deposit.
