Well I assume the Apple result will crush Palm, just think it would be funny to see a side by side comparison. What I think would be really funny is if the Apple pre-orders have already sold more than the Pre.
I'm still interested to see how the actual lines outside the store hold up since they allowed pre-orders, but with this latest news about the pre-orders being over there is possibly still a lot of demand out there that will have people waiting in lines like last time.

Ash is right...here is the message that you will receive if you try to pre-order a 3G S from ATT's website:
"Pre-orders for iPhone 3G S will ship 7 to 14 days after your order is placed. Orders will be shipped on a first-come, first-served basis.
The actual shipment date and receipt of your order is not guaranteed and may be subject to delays for reasons that include, but are not limited to, product availability, inventory, credit issues, number porting or carrier delays, and completion of other required AT&T business processes.
Additional items added to the cart at the time of your pre-order may ship separately depending on availability. Your credit card will not be charged until items are shipped."
Luckily I ordered mine on the 11th.

Obviously nothing is engraved in stone, so if pre-orders exceeded initial projections then conceivably ATT could have sold out of iphones a day earlier than anticipated.

I tried to order mine from the AT&T store where I live on the 12th, but there pre-ordering service wasn't working. The man at the store told me he'd call me as soon as it was up. I wasn't able to go Friday because the weather in the area had the store shut down before I got off work. Then yesterday, the 13th, "Sorry, too late. You can order it now but 'you might' get it in 7-14 days." I was a bit disappointed, so I went to apple.com and ordered it with a delivery date of the 19th. First iPhone! : ) The man from the store never called....
