Just FYI, if you haven't pre-ordered by now, you will most likely NOT get it shipped to you on release day...as I've read online, all orders placed right now are coming with a "2 week" estimated shipping time, which means the pre-orders are essentially sold out.

This will be sold at many retailers on the 21st. I wouldn't worry so much about it. You're likely to get it sooner that morning than those waiting for the UPS guy. Apple has shown with the past 4S and ipad 3 that they got it covered.
Other benefits of waiting? Don't tie up your funds. Take care of any activation problems on site. See real reviews. See iOS 6 prior to the 21st. Get accessories at store.

Same issue with the iPad 3, sells out online, retail stores overstocked and can't sell them... I did not order , not getting it, not interested in the upgrade, but I am sure on the 21st unless you live in a remote nowhere place like I do, you can find one easily.

Last year it wasn't as fantastic in my country.
First, we couldn't preorder like you guys. And we still can't now ):
We can only do so a few days after.
Next when it was launch date. all stores were out of stock. at least for the carriers.
I had to wait a week before I finally got my iPhone 4S. Damn it. I had to even queue.

And apart from pre-order, there will be a bunch available for purchase at retails outlets on launch day ... Apple stores, carrier stores, BestBuy, Walmart, etc.
