…similar lines in the other eight countries where the iPhone 5 will be available at Apple Stores on Friday.

Anticipating this sort of response (and probably stinging from being called out as copycats and getting a one billion dollar speeding ticket for doing so), Samsung have put out this rather funny ad mocking the sort of Apple fan who lines up for the latest iDevice:
