N97 releases tomorrow!!

While another major smartphone was publicly announced today, Nokia is quietly releasing its Flagship N97 phone tomorrow. I spoke with a Nokia representative at the Nokia flagship in NYC to confirm as soon as I heard the rumor.
From what I was told on the phone it will be available for purchase at 11am EST. However, the rumor I heard was that a select few who make it to the store at 7:30am in the morning will be allowed to walk out with the phone early.
As the representative I spoke too did not mention this, I have no idea if it is true.
I gather the phone will also be released at the corresponding Flagship store in Chicago as well.
As for the price it will be $699 plus sales tax.

So is anyone going to be there tomorrow to pick one up?
