iPhone 3G phones launched

by Ka Edong on July 12, 2008

There was a loooooong line of people at the Apple Mac shop extending outside the store’s doors, going round the corner and making its way around the block to the side of the building.

What were the people lined up for? The rollout of the iPhone 3G phones! And they’re lined up one day before the launch!

We were at Michigan Ave at Chicago, known as the Magnificent Mile — the main commercial district of Chicago like Orchard road of Singapore and Ayala Makati in the Philippines. Then we saw this looong line of people at the Apple Mac store. The first clue I had of what they were lined up for was the Apple logo at the outside of the store.

Wow! What some people would do to get a taste of cutting edge technology before everybody else. To think that the iPhones were going to be released *tomorrow*. Those people were lined up the day before the release of the product!

From the flyer of an Apple iPhone store representative:

We’re with you wherever you go.

iPhone 3G harnesses the power of AT&T’s extensive 3G mobile broadband network, which offers download speeds of up to 1.4 Mbps for 3G mobile phones. AT&T has the best global coverage of any provider, with vice roaming in more than 200 countries and data roaming in more than 145 countries.

I have a few photos to share. I’ll post at a later date.
