Meh, the haughty part of me wants to glance condescendingly at those who are willing to wait hours outside a store to get their grubby little hands on a little plastic box of circuits and silicone.
And the other part of me wants to scramble on my hands and knees to my att store and and camp out to get my grubby little hands on said plastic box of circuits and silicone.

I think that Apple is well aware of how popular this is and will be sure to send plenty of stock to each location. They wouldn't want to lose customers over lack of supply, especially since AT&T has the activation rule and if you want to use the phone right away you will activate it the same day.

I doubt it
I believe that Apple and AT&T are counting on the enormous demand that the device will have and prepared accordingly. In the end, selling lots of phones works in their advantage. I will go to the store in the afternoon (between 2 and 4pm). If they are sold out or there are too many people in line, I can wait.

I remember people were concerned about it when the first iPhone launched but they had plenty in stock at my local Apple Store after the launch. Still, there's a lot more hype with this release since it's so much "cheaper" in the short term. I'm sure it varies depending on how big the city you live in is, but in Oklahoma City I doubt it will be tough to find one on July 12th.

I'm sure they'll do well and many people will want and get an iphone but not like last year.
In my opinion unless they can really make everything low and not screw with the phone plan's on AT & T ($ 70 + A Texting Plan = Greed) most people can't afford a iphone like last year with the economy. Yet.. if the same people could afford a $500 iphone a year ago... then who knows...

true, true. but a lot of more people will be buying it, remember the price point 199!? i will be checking the internet, and calling the stores prior to going, to figure out which th the 3 lined up stores i should hit, and how popular they are.

i just spoke to an apple rep at the king of prussia store and he said they will be getting a shipment before friday large enough to carry them through the entire weekend. so it sounds like you can get it all weekend without waiting in a crazy line on friday.

True and I also forgot that this isn't limited to the U.S right now, BUT I think the U.S sell's of it wont be as great as fast as it was last year.
Apple hasn't had many commercials in the U.S saying how low the price is now and made it look like something for the everyday cell phone user. When they do that... then they'll have outstanding success and a whole new wide variety of customers.
