ATT has said it would be opening bright and early at 8am to sell 3G iPhones. Now TUAW is reporting that Apple stores will also open at 8am Friday to begin selling the phones.
W00t! That means waiting inside an air conditioned mall instead of 100′ heat in Houston.
When I checked last weekend the Apple store had planned to close at 5pm and reopen at 6pm to sell phones. 8am seems like a much better option.
Apple’s website now lists 8 am as the selling time.
