Premature ejaculation means fanbois get iPhones early

FedEx shaves off twitching time

Top 5 reasons to deploy VMware with Tegile

Updated Fans who pre-ordered an iPhone 4 are getting them a day early, thanks to FedEx's efficiency, so now they only have to remember to breathe for 24 hours.

An email sent out to those who pre-ordered makes it clear that delivery should be expected on June 23, a full day before the laggard retailers start putting handsets into hands.

The mail (reproduced by Gizmodo) suggests punters check the FedEx website tomorrow morning “to track your package to your doorstep”, if you can take the excitement.

This may only apply if you're in the USA - it's not clear if those who pre-ordered from this side of the pond will get treated with equal celerity, or whether they will have to wait until Thursday for release.

So if you're waiting in Blighty for Apple's latest gizmo then you'll have to console yourself with tomorrow's game against Slovenia. Drink enough during the game and your iPhone will be in your hands by the time you sober up. ®

Update: Unless your order is already on it's way you'll have to get very drunk indeed, as the UK date for those ordering now has slipped again and is now shown as the 14th of July - but if you start drinking now and continue until the cup final on the 11th then you should still get it before you sober up, assuming you survive the process.
