    I'm planning to get the 3G when it releases at a Best Buy in Vancouver, BC, Canada.

    How fast will they sell out? I will probably be in school when they announce (and/or release it) so what if I wait till the next day? Or better yet--next weekend?

    What do you guys think?

    Go to an Apple Store, I doubt they would run out.

    There aren't many apple stores in Canada, so he might not have one in his area.

    i think its fairly fast. most likely everyone will be sold out by around 3-4pm on release day.

    I thought most people have been saying that they won't show up in stores for a few days after their release.

    Depends on where you live.

    I live in a rural area, and stores in the biggest town near me (45k people, only town with any real stores in a 150 mile radius) never even sold out of the second gen Touch when it came out. They sold a few, but that was it.

    If you're in a major city and fighting a huge population, you'll likely run into a lot of sold out shelves.

    Yeah, but they're a bit cheaper at Best Buy/Costco. As a high school student, I kinda want to save as much as I can. :/ But if the Apple Store wouldn't run out and that's my last resort, sure.

    One of the few Apple Stores opened in Canada happens to be 3 blocks from my school. Lucky me.

    And this is why life for Apple-fans-that-are-still-in-high-school-and-are-wanting-to-buy-brand-new-products-on-the-release-date suck.

    I do hope so, and I really hope it lands on the weekend.

    I think the first batch of new iPods can sell out quite fast here in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia (this is a city with population of nearly 600k, btw!

    In fact, when the iPhone 3GS was released, ppl complained that they couldn't get their units because the stores ran out of the stock... What made it more painful is that these folks already made a deposit to the shop!
