    8000 seems slightly ridiculous IMO. I don't think that can be anywhere near correct.
    They sold over 100,000 in pre-orders in the USA over the first couple of hours. If they have only released 8000 within Australia they are having a laugh.

    Not to mention 3 and Virgin too. Hell, I hear the Apple Store won't actually sell iPhones!

    Didn't someone from TNT say they had around 8000 iPads for Sydney area alone at launch.

    iPads worldwide 3 months 3 million sold - iPhone4 3 days 1.7 million sold

    I think they would supply way more iPhone4's for launch than they did iPads.

    My local TLife is opening at 6am, but have no clue on how much stock they will get as of 10am this morning...

    For me I think it will be a 6am show up there, then off to work in the city (via either the city Tlife or the Apple Store as necessary).

    Where are people getting these figures from? Some bloke from TNT? Some shop in the suburbs? A mate?

    skritter, Apple can only dole out supply according to what exists. If manufacturing output is down compared to iPads in a similar time frame, Apple's constrained to what's left.

    My father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate told me that each store is only getting one. And they also told me they were giving them away free.

    C'mon guys, it's Apple. Everyone knows that stores have no idea until they receive stock, and they are probably under NDA to not open the packages of them until the store closes.

    We'll know when we get there. It sucks, but that's how it works.

    Manager of a Brisbane Telstra shop said they are only getting 5 32GB models, and all of Telstra only allocated 2000, so half of what others have said.

    I have my name down on a list and will be showing up at 7am, also great to hear Telstra increase data allowance on their plans, 200mb on their $49 compared to over a GB with the others, thanks Telstra ;-)

    I think people should stop believing what they are told from retail employees. Just line up when you feel you should.
