Nice look at the customers waiting in line at one of New York’s Verizon wireless stores from Jenna Wortham in The New York Times:
Despite icy temperatures in New York on Thursday morning, people eager to buy an iPhone that is compatible with Verizon’s wireless network filed into Apple and Verizon stores.
It was cold, not crowded.
Damon Darlin, The Times’s technology editor, reports that in downtown San Francisco, nearly two dozen anxious iPhone customers were queued up outside of a Verizon store as early as 6:45 a.m. Only two people were sitting outside the city’s flagship Apple store half a block away. At that location, the camera crews outnumbered iPhone buyers.
Did I mention it was not crowded? It doesn’t matter. I’ve had the Verizon iPhone all day and not one dropped call. Not one.
