Day of the iPhone release

This is the night when the iPhone is released in America. Are you dying to get your hands on one? Well, get in line. Literally. People are lined up outside the Apple stores, doing live coverage through blogs and podcasts. As expected, it’s more like a show than a sales queue and the media love it.
