It’s opening day for the iPhone in NYC. I’m in the crowd. Somewhere. It was a little damp and I didn’t get my black Apple umbrella but I did get an iPhone 3G S.
Despite competition from the gloomy weather and a nearby Jonas Brothers performance, more than 400 Apple aficionados were waiting outside the company’s New York flagship store on Fifth Avenue at 7 a.m., when the iPhone 3G S officially went on sale.
Crowds were much smaller than a year ago, thanks to Apple’s pre-order system.
