bitserf: So is Vodafone going to be allowing us to pre-order, sign up or make a commitment of some sort?I sure as hell am not going to queue until midnight like the rest of the Steve worshiping sheep...And this whole having to go to a store deal...I want to go there, pick it up, and be done with it, not go there, on the possibility of something maybe being there, maybe not, who knows.What's the point of registering if its an information relay of stuff that's already in a press release anyway?
Bitserf, many thanks for sharing the thoughts and assumptions of your mind. Im amazed that your asking questions that just wont be answered until "all is revealed". Im sure the PR Machine @ vodafone love your emotional responses and have "won" you with how they are launching and creating hype/chatter.
Nobody is asking you to go there at midnight, the point of registering for info is so they can forcast demand and interest. This in turn transpires into 'word of mouth' to people who you talk to, thus the hype just gets bigger and bigger...interest in the product sores and wammo..... sales sales sales.
After all, in the business of selling.... all any company wants to do is sell more. Patience is a virtue and if you really want it, you will get it.
