I thought I would stop into the Apple Store in Soho, NY (Prince St.) to pick up a new iPhone 3G on my way to the office. I knew there probably would be a line, but didn’t realize the magnitude. I counted over 135 people in line from just my vantage point but I’m sure it wrapped around the block and I wasn’t motivated to count more people
Here are some pics from moments ago:
I stood in front of the main entrance and watched as they let batches of people into the store -inside, lined up on both sides of the store were employees dressed in blue shirts clapping as people walked in. It was majestical for the uber-Apple nerd (like me).
I’m going to try and buy my phone from the Apple Store in the Westchester mall this evening – maybe less lines!
