English: A ridiculous line of people waiting for the iPhone 3G outside of the Apple Store on 5th Ave. between 58th St. and 59th St., NYC, July 12, 2008. I was not in the line. pictured: the Apple Store entrance (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Some New Yorkers have already started to camp outside of Apple’s flagship store on fifth Avenue to get their hands on the new iPhone 5. “I don’t have to shower or change clothes,” said software developer Hazem Sayed, who has been camping outside since Wednesday. Pre-orders for the new phone sold out in 60 minutes, according to the NY Post.

The online demand for the iPhone 5 was so great that it will now take Apple atleast two weeks to ship new orders, instead of the promised Sept. 21 arrival date.
