The new iPhone 5 is available online, but the Apple faithful were more than happy to wait in line Friday to snap up the hot new device.
In New York, Chicago, Washington and elsewhere around the globe, iPhone aficionados spent the night sleeping on sidewalks just so they could be among the first in the door to buy the iPhone 5. The gadget boasts a thinner, sleeker profile than its predecessors.
Reviews of the iPhone 5 have been mixed. And the Android crowd is collectively rolling its eyes at all the predictable hoopla.
Not that iPhone fans would notice.
They were too busy using their "old" iPhones to brag on Twitter, Facebook and other social media platforms that they were poised to have the iPhone 5 in their hot little hands.
