iPhone Mania Engulfs World – Long Camp Out Lines

As iPhone 4S begins its worldwide rollout, people all around the world have begun forming queues at Apple retail stores in preparation of tomorrow’s product launch. The iPhone 4S, which was announced at a media event last week, will be on sale tomorrow 8 am onwards in these countries: US, Canada, UK, France, Germany, Australia and Japan.Like its predecessors, it will be available in two colors (black, white) and three storage sizes (16 GB, 32 GB, 64 GB); in the United States, and it will be available on carriers AT&T, Verizon and for the first time on Sprint.

As soon as the online pre-orders started for the device, Apple announced they had already topped 1 million mark and those who weren’t able to pre-order it, or decided to avoid the online process altogether, are now waiting on the streets hoping to get hands on one of their own tomorrow morning.

Firstly, our Italian friends at iSpazio have decided to fly to London to get an iPhone 4S on day one (Italy isn’t among the October 14th launch countries). More than 50 people are already in line at the Covent Garden Apple Store, as shown on iSpazio’s videos and photos.

From Japan, Guillaume Erard reports (via MacRumors) that over 100 people were already in line at the Shibuya retail store 11 hours before launch.

Meanwhile, developer Joe Hewitt has tweeted Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is the first in line at the Los Gatos Apple store.

As we continue our countdown towards the release of iPhone 4S its still hard to believe that Mr. Jobs is not with us. May his soul rest in peace.
