This comes as a surprise.
Retail outlets around the country opened their doors this morning to find it was much like any other day. Many called in extra employees to deal with what was expected to be a mad rush of people eager to get their hands on the new Verizon iPhone, but there werent any huge lines to be found. Even big cities saw only small lines that could be easilyhandled by retail staff.
The New York Times compiled a list of reports and social media entries from around the country and found much of the same. Business Insider put together a photo gallery and called the lines laughably short.”
So whats going on here? Here are some theories:
The most interest in the Verizon iPhone might come from the Dakotas, Montana and Wyoming, where AT&T service isnt available. So this is the first chance at an iPhone for many people in those areas of the country.
