The new iPhone 5G that came out on March 21, 2011 (top).
On April 1 of the year 2011, Apple released there latest and greatest invention, the iPhone 5G! Since about March 21, people have been camping outside Apple stores in order to be the first ones to get the newest phone. I talk to the first person in line, Mike Johnson, asking him why he decided to camp out in order to get his phone, he responded “I love Apple and Mac products and I am always up-to-date with the newest phone for them as well. I just need their products. Plus, I heard that the new iPhone is going to weigh about .03 pounds so it will be better and smaller.”
In order to get in on the latest craze, you have to wait in a line that wraps all around Ala Moana. When doors opened on the 1st, things got really crazy. Manager of the Ala Moana Apple Store, Amy Kart, tells us, “This is by far the busiest we’ve ever been for selling any Apple product.”
You may ask yourself, “all this just for a phone?” Well the iPhone 5G isn’t just a phone, it’s also a computer as well. With an 85% of no dropped calls, a wide range of applications and music and you can even video with people who also have it, and much more. Many people want it because the phone is also going to be so light and its easier for them to carry, others want it just because its the new best thing. The iPhone 5G is estimated to be sold out everywhere for more than 5 months once Apple sells their initial batch. If you’re too far back in the line you might not be able to get your new phone. So you better hurry and get in line!
