The Apple iPhone goes on sale in the UK tonight at 18:02. Not sure why Apple abandoned their normal on the dot of 6pm launch time, but just after the little hand points to six and the big hand passes 12, the online Apple Store will throw it’s switch and Carphone Warehouse will remove the cardboard hoardings around their display cases.
Worth noting that at lunchtime today, there wasn’t a tented village, nor even any kind of a queue of apple-eating enthusiasts with pockets stuffed full of fivers forming outside the
Cornmarket Arthur Square branch of Carphone Warehouse.
Maybe everyone’s gone to wait in a warm shopping centre like Forestside instead. Or maybe there’s just no interest!
Hope the CPW systems stay up today!
Update: El Reg reports a lack of interest in the iPhone right across London CPW and O2 stores on Friday night!
