Line already forming in New York for iPhone 5
Demand for the iPhone 5 appears to be white hot. Lines are already forming outside Apple stores. In the very early hours this morning, people hoping to buy the handset — swaddled in sleeping bags or heavy coats — were camping out overnight in front of Apple’s 5th Avenue store, also known as the Cube.
They’d began gathering on Friday, a full week before the devices are scheduled to go on sale at stores. If the iPhone 5 follows the same pattern as other popular Apple gadgets, the lines will continue to grow.
