I live in NY, but it's looking more and more like I'll be in the Annapolis, MD area for the next iPhone launch. That assuming we get a launch sometime soon. I was curious if anyone has camped out at any particular mall or store. What can I expect? Outdoors? Indoors? What stores have the most stock?

That's the store (Annapolis Mall) where Kev waited in line for his 3G and 3GS. I think he's planning on having the iPhone 5 delivered, though.

If it's close to a Halloween launch, maybe he'll agree to dress up as Batman and Robin.

The stores in Md seemed to me to be under stocked. You are much better off ordering online. I intend to. Last time I camped out was for the 3G outside of the Frederick AT&T store. They only had enough devices on hand for the first 15 people. They had over 50 people waiting.

I've ordered online for the last two gens an had no problem.

I've camped out twice at the store at the Annapolis Mall. No problems getting one. As a matter of fact, when I showed up at about 6:00 am to get the 3GS, I wound up being #4 in line. The online ordering had taken a big chunk of the camping folks. If I can, I'd be glad to meet you out there.

Cool. Do they allow you to stay inside overnight or will I need my foul weather gear?
