The time is almost here, folks. Apple has pulled down the Apple online store in preparation for pre-orders beginning tomorrow, June 15. Weird to note is the store is down internationally, not only in the five countries getting pre-orders tomorrow.
Update: Mac Life reports the store may go live at 1 AM Pacific/ 4 AM Eastern time. This does make sense given how early Apple went into update mode. For example when Apple put iPad up for pre-order in the U.S., the store went down around 3 AM and returned at 5:30 AM. In comparison, the store going down at 10 PM Pacific tonight and going live at 1 AM Pacific does make sense.
Updated 2X: AT&T has posted their pre-order site.
Additionally, AT&T notes that new iPhones “will be shipped to arrive as early as June 24, 2010 if submitted by 2 PM E.T., June 22, 2010.”
