Apple kicking off iPhone 3G launch 8am on July 11?

Apple store in the morningApple’s planning to put their iPhone 3G up for sale early in the morning on the handset’s global July 11 launch date. Start getting used to waking up early, folks. Apple is reportedly set to open the floodgates to blurry-eyed iPhone 3G hopefuls at 8:00am on the morning of July 11. We’re assuming that 8am local time is the launch window to look out for.

This is all rumor at this point, but it makes sense that Apple would kick off the launch day earlier than last year’s 6:00 pm launch – what with all the in-store activations likely to make the checkout process significantly more drawn out than with the first iPhone.
