A Glimpse at 3G iPhone Mania

A Glimpse at 3G iPhone Mania

The new 3G iPhone won’t be available until Friday, but some New Yorkers are already lined up at the Fifth Avenue Apple Store, according to Gothamist. Now, I don’t wanna rain on anyone’s parade (I’ll let the forecast of showers this week handle that), but why are people lining up for a new generation of a device that has been on the market for a year? Consumers lined up and camped out for the first, because there was a sense of discovery. So, now what? The Star Wars fans camped out for the release of The Phantom Menace, but it’s not like they did the same thing for Attack of the Clones. Partly because they knew what they were getting the second time around.
