There are lines all over the country for the Apple iPhone 4 launch today at midnight, and we think there’s more than a thousand people waiting in line. It’s insane. The massive crowd contains celebrities, local media and press, Apple fanboys, and all kinds of people you can think of, and I need to tell you that it’s maybe the biggest and craziest iPhone 4 launch party on Earth.
The party is a show, and since Smartone Vodafone had an overwhelming response from customers registering for the new iPhone 4, they decided to throw a special iPhone 4 Midnight Launch Party at ifc Mall before the phone becomes generally available at the morning. However, the party is not opened to the public. Up to 2,000 invitees drawn by a computer-generated random selection will be allowed to purchase and sign up for the iPhone 4, right on the spot. And, I’m not invited…
Just only for invited customers, no walk-in, boo-boo …
More customers line up outside the building, luckily tonight’s weather is not that hot.
