Apple began pushing the new iPhone 5 to it’s retail stores everywhere in U.S and then in Europe. Apple and other retailers will start offering the handset this Friday at 8 AM. The bad news is, it looks like some folks are already lining up… A new report from Fortune which says that a lot of people are already in lines waiting for the iPhone 5 at New York Apple Store..
All of these people who appears in the picture above are going to wait eight days to get the iPhone 5. But it sounds like these folks are hoping for more than a handset. Out of the seven people that Fortune talked to, six of them were there for promotional purposes.
A couple of the guys are hoping to get exposure for their new social media startup. And there’s also a few musicians. And then of course there are some folks in line hoping to either sell their place, or sell the iPhone 5 to folks with less patience.
But waiting all these time to get a handset is really ridiculous with my all respect to everyone, but waiting eight days outside New York Apple store is considered as a crazy thing.
But if waiting out in the elements for days isn’t really your thing, as aforementioned, the iPhone 5 goes on sale this Friday, at several retailers, at 8AM local time.
