Doesn't stop the naysayers with their headlines such as this:

Apple Inc. iPhone 6 First Weekend Shipments May Disappoint

Here's a collection of clips from stores around the world. Lots o excitement today!

I didn't get in at preorder, so I'll wait until the dust settles before upgrading to the iPhone 6+. My 3GS is still getting the job done, so I can wait. For a little while...

OK, I watched the NY city one -- is it just me --or are the majority of people in line seem to be Asian?

Is there some sort of resellers market for the phones overseas?

I noticed that too. I believe the iPhone 6 commands a big premium in China right now. Last I heard it's over $2,000. American dollars and rising.

Resell market overseas?!?! I reckon so - it'd pay your round trip from NYC - Beijing.

I love that remark by German man, "I feel lucky". I wonder if you'd ever hear that kind of remark when someone buys a droid.

Ahh, Ginza store, I should be there...

If idiots could fly, this place would be an airport. And I'd be a TSA agent.

If only all those people were waiting in line to give blood..... or volunteer for a shelter, or literacy program etc.
Apple should change its logo to a golden cow.

I noticed a similar population of the line at the Michigan Avenue Chicago store.
Wondered the same thing.

Is that Asian or Asian extraction?

Heh, they show the line in Holyoke, down the road (aways) from me.

Exactly my plan as well, that and the millions of iP6+ returns when people realize how huge they are...

Passed an AT&T store on the way home. Looked like a line of six people outside waiting for a rep to free up. Approx 4:45pm.

Took my son in at noon, just to look at the new phones, figuring they'd be long out of stock. He ended up walking right in and getting the last 64 gb iPhone 6. He's pretty happy :-) Of course we're in a medium to small sized city in California.

The iPhone 6 is still clearing regulatory hurdles in China. If you can get your hands on some, it will sell for big bucks. The gold iPhone in China is a huge status symbol.

I suppose you let the buyer worry about clearing customs??
