    I haven't seen anything yet but it wouldn't surprise me to see best buy have a few in stock on April 30th

    Best bet is the apple stores. The BBs reported had only 15 in total per store for the wifi. Had no trouble at an apple B&M.

    It's the "5:00 PM" specific hour on 4/30 that gives me pause, but since I'm not gonna stand in line, I'm not really concerned. I'am interested to see how many 3G units will be available to same-day shoppers...but mine is on order anyway.

    Yesterday at the local BB I was told they would have 3Gs in on the 29th and thought they would get about 150 units. I didn't go back today but assume they would now revise that to the 30th at 5 PM. Will ask again for sure.

    If they get 150 units, I'm the King of Europe.

    I don't think 5PM is accurate for Best Buy. The orginal after 3:00 PM for walk in at Apple Stores on April 3rd was because of the pre-orders, but at Best Buy you could get one when they opened on the 3rd. I think that Apple pushed the time up to 5:00 PM at there stores because it is a regular work week day.

    I got mine on Saturday at a Best Buy. None in any of the five apple stores in the area.

    if you think it! if stores get 3gs on 4/30 and ours ship on 4/30.i think we got shafted. so i will go to best buy and if i,am lucky and get one . when the one i preorder come in on 5 /5 (5 days shiping) and you got to be home to sign for it .i will return it to apple store unopened. so what was the point of preorder anyways frank
