Optus plans midnight launch party for Apple’s iPhone 3G in Australia

“Optus will be the first Australian mobile carrier to distribute the iPhone at midnight on Thursday, followed by Telstra and Vodafone early on Friday morning,” Asher Moses reports for The sydney Morning Herald.

“Optus will open its George Street store in Sydney at midnight on Thursday. On Friday morning, the day of the iPhone 3G’s official debut, Optus will open a number of its stores two hours early at 7am for eager early adopters itching for their iPhone fix,” Moses reports.

“Melissa Clare, Optus’s corporate affairs manager, said only deposit holders who were Optus customers would be able to collect their handset at the midnight launch in Sydney,” Moses reports. “On Friday, deposit holders would get priority service but anyone could come and buy an iPhone.”

  1. iPhone 2.0 is not on my list of midnight misadventures thankfully.

    I’m in bed by 8 PM and up at 5 AM working out for a hour everyday.

    Besides the iPhone keyboard is much too small for my BIG PC USER CHOKING FINGERS!!

    Some think I’m gay for using a Mac, until I stand up and tower over them of course. ARG!!!
