Multiple Apple Stores had some stock in earlier this morning, and have sold out, but there are 3Gs available in all models. Please note stores are opening at 8am or 9am, so check online the night before to see if there's stock at a particular store and get there as early as possible. Also note, at this moment, that Glendale and 3rd Street Promenade have stock, but it says online that they don't, so it's only so accurate:
The Grove Apple Store: SOLD OUT, opening at 8am
Beverly Center Apple Store: SOLD OUT, opening at 9am, but will start opening at 8am Friday
Pasadena Apple Store: SOLD OUT, opening at 8am
3rd Street Promenade Apple Store: ALL MODELS IN STOCK, RE: line? "There is a line...don't know how long, but it's growing." Opening at 8am
Glendale Galleria Apple Store: LIMITED QUANTITY OF WHITE 16 GIGS and BLACK 16 GIGS, "can't see the line...hold on...click," opening at 9am
Century City Apple Store: SOLD OUT, opening at 8am
