Paris resident Raphael Journé, about to buy his seventh iPhone, shows the "crappy" phone he's been suffering during a two-week period after he lost his iPhone 4 and before Apple's latest smartphone went on sale.
Some started lining up yesterday to get an iPhone 4S in Paris, but plenty more who showed up today had a comparatively short wait of four hours. The waiting area rapidly emptied as the line moved into the store.
The first two customers in line, Keenen Thompson and Jessica Mellow, walk out of the store with their new smartphones. They had been waiting since September 26--with sponsorship from an iPhone reseller.
