Apple resting to 9 in the ‘burbs

If you’re desperate for an iPhone 3G, didn’t crash into the O2 web site on Monday and live in the sticks, you have an extra hour of snooze time on Friday morning.

Perfect if you have a pre-launch party hangover.

Whilst the queues in London will be moving at 8.02, elsewhere bleary eyed O2 staff will be opening stores at 9am for the inundation of iPhone punters.

This leaves our city friends with 58 minutes of prime iPhone lording.

But wait. If the O2 web site was overloaded on Monday, will they be able to cope on Friday?

Best guess is no, so take a friend to ferry the Starbucks whilst you wait for the interminable credit check to complete.

Remember your credit card!
