iPhone 3G S Release Still Draws Lines

The iPhone is in its third generation, many customers are getting them shipped to their homes or offices through pre-orders, and still others pre-ordered from AT&T, but Apple still saw more than one hundred people line up outside its Flat Iron Crossing Apple Store ahead of the 7:00 AM iPhone 3G S launch.

Intrepid reporter Jeff Gamet is on location at this event, where more some 50 people were in line at about 6:15 local time in Broomfield, CO.

That number doubled by 7:00 AM, when this Apple Store location opened its doors. These numbers are far short of what the company saw for the earlier iPhone launches, but are still impressive given pre-ordering deliveries and limited eligibility for discounts for most iPhone 3G owners.

Mr. Gamet reported via Twitter that it took 9 minutes for the first transaction to take place, about the same amount of time as the original iPhone and the iPhone 3G.

The lines in New York City are a bit longer -- The Wall Street Journal's Walt Mossberg said via Twitter that he, "Just gave up on iPhone line. Have to get to work. Should have ordered online. But scored a free bottle of water."

In the meanwhile, our own Dave Hamilton reported that his iPhone 3G S was "out for delivery," according to UPS. Whoops, make that "Delivered," and in his hands.
