I had a great experience last night. Got my phone at 3:01 for pickup on launch day. Most people I know who were also preordering also got one for Nov. 3, only a couple people are having to wait a week. Even now the next morning it looks like it’s only delayed 5-6 weeks. It looks like all of those rumors about very tight availability were a bit overblown. Certainly seems like they don’t have more than they need, but lots of people were really worried that it would slip into 2018 in minutes.
