Hundreds of people stood on a line that snaked around the corner of Apple’s flagship store in New York waiting to get their hands on the latest iPhone 4, which released in the US on Thursday.
It’s 6am on Thursday morning and the line snakes around the block here.
The doors to the Apple store open at 7am and the first people to get into the store after hours and hours of waiting, were greeted with lots of fanfare. There’s a separate line for those who pre-ordered the phone –600,000 pre orders were made before Apple’s site came crashing down – and a line for those who didn’t pre-order. But there’s no doubt that for iPhone fans, it’s been worth the wait
