iPhone 5: The wait is over

September 21st, 2012 | by addis portal |

(CNN) — The most diehard fans of Apple’s iconic iPhone were completing what’s become an annual rite of passage on Friday as lines that snaked for blocks in some cases began filing into Apple retails stores to be the first to get an iPhone 5.

Kelson Horton, 39, had been in line at Lenox Square mall in Atlanta since 5 p.m. Thursday.

The truck driver from Jonesboro, Georgia, said he’s done so for every iteration of the smartphone that Apple CEO Steve Jobs introduced to the world in 2006.

“I’ve been doing it since Day One,” Horton said. “It’s the experience more than anything. It just happens to be the hottest phone on the market.”

Near the front of a line of about 200 people Friday morning, Horton said he got about an hour’s worth of sleep while meeting new friends from what he called “the iPhone family.”
