Optus planning midnight launch of iPhone 3G

Optus plans to become the first Australian carrier to offer the iPhone 3G with the midnight opening of its George Street store in Sydney, according to the Age. The carrier plans to open a number of other stores at 7 a.m. Friday morning for the iPhone 3G launch. Optus corporate affairs manager Melissa Clare said that only deposit holders who were Optus customers would be able to pick up their iPhone at the midnight event, adding that deposit holders would receive priority service throughout the day on Friday, although anyone could come in to purchase the device. Clare also said Optus would have events on Friday morning at the Chadstone store in Melbourne and the Queen Street store in Brisbane, with other participating stores around both cities opening for business in the early morning. Competing carriers Telstra and Vodafone have yet to announce details of their launch plans for Australia. [via MDN]
