Change of plans: Apple stores to open at 7 a.m. Friday
The company stores will open an hour earlier than previously announced to accommodate the first day of iPhone 3G S sales.
Apple Stores will now open an hour earlier than planned on Friday when theS goes on sale.
Doors will now open at 7 a.m. in all time zones. The move makes sense since AT&T stores are opening at 7 a.m. Friday, though only for customers who pre-ordered an iPhone. AT&T's doors will open to sell the phones at 9 a.m. on a first-come, first-served basis.
As usual, we'll be following iPhone sales in various time zones. Will Apple fans stand in line for the third straight year? We'll find out. In the meantime, click the photo above for a gallery of very committed line standers from the 2008 launch of the iPhone 3G.
