Queues are building up outside Apple’s flagship store in Regent Street, London. Well, OK, there was one person in a bright yellow cocoon in this photo, but apparently they’re arriving in droves now, with as many as TEN people sighted.
You do know you have to pay for this iPhone, right?
There’s a supercharged atmosphere outside the O2 store in BIshops Stortford, as our esteemed ex-editor-but-one Stuart Dredge found out this morning.
Everyone looks really happy.
More pictures from an undisclosed Carphone Warehouse store somewhere in the UK. No word on whether those people are still there.
I heard a rumour that one CW store only had six handsets, but neglected to tell seventh place onwards for two hours. Ouch!
Apparently, this store in Göteborg, Sweden, told people queueing that they had to leave at around 2.30am because the store was closing. I bet that went down well. (Via Johan Sanneblad
In New York, a queue of some 100 people has formed outside the 5th Avenue Apple Store, although some people have already given up.
One guy tried to sell his seventh place for $150 – sorry, you need to be at least third to make that deal worth it.
Another couple left when they found out you had to sign up to a contract. Or maybe it was just too cold.
