Apple Store is down, iPhone 4S preorders begin 12:01 A.M. Pacific

The show must go on... and Apple's famous sticky note has appeared on cue. The online Apple Store is down in preparation for preorders for the iPhone 4S, which will commence at 12:01 A.M. Pacific time. Those of you who are eagerly awaiting preorders for the latest iPhone had better still be awake by then, because if history is any guide Apple will burn through the first wave of preorders before the sun comes up.

Update: The Store is back up after a delay of nearly 40 minutes. Pre-orders have begun. If you were like me and hoping to snag an unlocked model, you're out of luck until November.
