A day before the iPhone 5 goes on sale in the U.S., Steve Wozniak already has two of them.
The Apple co-founder and veteran line sitter waited overnight at an Apple store in Queensland, Australia -- where he's traveling for business and to attend a concert -- to be among the first in the world to buy the new smartphone.
Reached on his cellphone shortly before 9:30 a.m. local time in Australia, Wozniak said he'd bought the phones about an hour earlier and hadn't yet tried them out. He got two 64GB models, one in white and one in black, because he couldn't decide from photos which he liked better.
"I went in thinking I liked the black better, but now I'm thinking I like the white better," he said. "They're both so beautiful."
Wozniak said he was most excited about the iPhone 5's larger screen size. He also wanted to try Apple's new EarPods to see if the revamped earbuds had superior sound quality.
