Following a first round of pre-orders limited to Verizon customers last week, Apple has now released the Verizon iPhone for general pre-order. Starting now, everyone can pre-order the new device on both Apple's and Verizon's site, for either delivery or pick-up. Unfortunately, deliveries seem to be scheduled to start the 18th so you'll probably be better off if you decide to reserve and pick it up in-store tomorrow. Alternatively, you could simply not reserve and try your luck by walking into an Apple Retail Store starting at 7:00 a.m. Knowing how fast the Verizon-only pre-orders lasted, you better hurry up. As for unreserved in-store pick-ups, you better go stand in line already.
