Customers Are Already Lining Up for the iPhone 5 A lineup has already formed for the new iPhone 5 at the flagship Fifth Ave Apple Store, reports Fortune. Yesterday they were seven people lined up, each for business purposes. Today there appears to be ten people notes AppleInsider. The first two in line are Hazem Sayed, 54, and his marketing manager Sage, 31, who started the line on Thursday at 8 a.m. -- eight days early -- to promote their social media startup called Vibe. Jessica Mellow, 27, and Keenen Thompson, 22, are third and fourth in line. Mellow is blogging about her experience this week at iphonewhatever.com. Keenen is the assistant to a Conde Nast fashion writer. Their wait is being sponsored by Gazell who is providing food, drink, camp chairs, sleeping bags, Gazelle-branded t-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, wrist bands, and, in case of rain, a tent. Lol crazy people, must be sponsored by Apple.
