CNET News Video: iPhone 4S launch day in New York

3:12 /

Crowds gather for the early morning launch of the iPhone 4S. This time around, customers can pick from three carriers and ask Siri for some help.

-Hi, I'm Bridget Carey with CNET TV and we are here at the Fifth Avenue Apple store where once again it's another iPhone launch day, this time the iPhone 4S. Now, it's a little tamer than previous launch dates. There's still a crowd here that's very excited to be a part of the moment to be the first to get the iPhone. So, we went around asking what carrier because now there're 3 to choose from and what makes them excited about upgrading. I see you're on catch. It couldn't have been easy to stand here since 11 p.m. -Close to impossible. It is awful. -What makes it worth it for you? -Really, I don't know yet. I'll find out maybe an hour or so. -Which carrier are you going with? -I would have to say I'm going with AT&T. -I'm on Verizon. -AT&T. -I'm going with Sprint. I've been a long time customer with theirs. -I'm going to be going with Verizon as I have been for a while. -So, is this your first iPhone? -It is, very iPhone. I'm a convert. I was using the LG Ally, which is an android phone. So, I'm switching over to the other side. -What makes you wanna switch over? -I was really convinced with the new iOS 5, the performance upgrade and then of course Siri who seems to be very endearing. -It's my first iPhone and I'm getting it because I'm tired of my Blackberry and when I heard the iPhone was coming to Sprint, I was just waiting for it. -What's your most excited about in all the features? -Honestly, Siri, because I've used iPhones before, but I think that Siri is the one thing that will like separate this one of course. -I'm a kind of [unk] fan and, you know, it's kind of cool to have a conversation with the computer. It might sounds like nerdy or whatever, but I think it's really the next step of search. -The iPad 2 was much worse. I mean the line was all they way around central park. -Here are at the Upper West Side Apple store where people just got inside. -The line is moving and there is a lot of cheer in hall and by the employees inside. What's the first thing you wanna ask Siri? Have you thought of this? -Yes, will you marry? -She said, it was not part of her user agreement. -Where the McDonald's around here? I found the McDonald's, see it points 2 miles [unk] click on it. It shows me the map. It's pretty cool. -How did the stock market closed yesterday? They you go Dow Jones s&p 500 no ASE composite. Oh, there you go. -At the Upper West Side Apple store, it's about 40 minutes after the launch there's only about 30 on line, so not that long. The majority of people are saying they wanna stick with AT&T and they are really interested in Siri. My only question is I wondered if Siri knows when the iPhone 5 is coming out. For CNET TV, I'm Bridget Carey.
