Here's a massive piece on the massive premier Australian Apple Store in Sydney. Summary?
- Will be officially opening on Thursday 19 June 2008 at 5PM for late night shopping;
- Australian release of 3G iPhone expected to be feature of store opening with Steve Jobs to announce 3G iPhone overnight in the U.S.;
- Three stories of retail space with an as yet unknown architectural feature costing approximately $A15m; and
- Expect massive queues to get into the store on Thursday night.
Interestingly I tried to find the development application for Sydney's Apple Store at the Sydney City Council website and came up with nothing. That is unusual.
