    Due to the fact that New Zealand's timezone elapses prior to any other timezone in the world, New Zealand will be the first country -- out of 22 -- to have the 3G iPhone available. Those living in New Zealand, or those visiting for the sole purpose of being one of the first to land themselves a 3G iPhone, will be able to get their 3G iPhone 19 hours before those living in Cupertino, California - where Apple's headquarters are located.

    So, as of this post, it is currently 4:20PM on July 10th, 2008 in New Zealand.

    With the 3G iPhone available in New Zealand at exactly 12:01AM on July 11th, 2008, this concludes that in less than only 8 hours, those in New Zealand can grab their 3G iPhones. (While most of us in North America will still be sleeping.)

    no, if its coming out midnight tonight then its only another 5 1/2 hours.

    pricing plans here will prevent any large queues though in my opinion
