Sydney Apple Store Opening

Wednesday, June 18, 2008

The first Australia Apple Store, the 215th in the world is located on the corner of Sydney's George and King Streets in the CBD.

The three-story complex features 700 square metres of glass enclosing its street front atrium. This is formed from 15m tall panels of glass, the largest such plates ever created in the world.

The ground floor is devoted to the company's Macintosh computer line, still the core of the company's business. In all, some 90 Mac units will be on display, all connected to the internet with free net accesss for visitors.

Level two, reached via a glass staircase of the type that has become a signature of the Apple stores, features the company's mobile devices, with the 60 iPods now on display to be joined by a range of iPhones when they are launched here next month.
The top level will form the store's services department, with training areas, seminar spaces and what Apple says is the largest "Genius Bar'' at any of its worldwide stores.

Was passing through the store on the way to lunch and I noticed that there was a media event organized by the big A... camera crew, reporters, in-store reviewers doing what they do.

The opening is more that 36 hours away and already they are a couple of mad Apple fans queueing up to be the first into Sydney's Apple store.... bragging rights I reckon.

Sorry guys... that lady beat you to it!

A reporter I reckon... but she does look happy! Here's a little peak through the glass window to see what's inside.

I bet you it's gonna be packed when the store open tomorrow! We'll see if I can get a couple of nice shots of the opening 2morrow. ^_^
