It's just been written in World Tech History: Apple iPhone 3GS - the third serving of Apple's smartphone, was finally released for public consumption yesterday. But the interesting thing is that, despite the great new features of the phone that have earlier been disclosed, fewer people lined up for for it - with only around 100 to 200 people in some release venues.
This is in stark contrast to the release of iPhone 3G last year with frenzied crowds stretching from blocks on end.
What could have caused this display of apparent lack of interest in iPhone 3GS? The global financial crisis? The stellar sales of Palm Pre? New Apple and AT&T pre-order and reservation purchase options for iPhone 3GS? Or, as some people put it, that iPhone 3GS is not too different from 3G?
Whatever the case, we are missing the long lines.
