“Apple devotees in states largely disregarded under a formerly exclusive deal to distribute the iPhone rushed to stores to snap up the gadget early Thursday as Verizon Wireless entered the fray,” The Associated Press reports. “Phil Toso, the manager of a Verizon store in Baxter, Minn., said dozens of people showed up when the business opened at 7 a.m. Thursday. The store normally opens at 10. ‘The customers that are coming in are coming in for the iPhone,’ Toso said.”
I had not even realized that there were such large parts of the US without access to an iPhone. Not a lot of people but I am glad that now all 50 states have the ability. After waiting 4 years.
