The iPhone 3G S Launch in San Francisco

iPhone 3G S Launch: Mild Compared to Last Year

If any of you were around for the iPhone launch in 2007 and the iPhone 3G launch last year, you're probably noticing that the hoopla surrounding this year's launch isn't as crazy as previous years. Before AT&T opened its doors this morning, there were a few people lingering about, but nothing to the effect of lawn chairs, a beverage cooler, and blankets. Here are some pics of what the scene looked like outside San Francisco's Apple store this morning — a decent, civilized line — without any hardcore overnighters. I know most of you are pretty excited about the iPhone 3G S, so taking into consideration the state of the economy and the fact that you could pre-order the device online, do you think this is why the lineups are smaller than the past two years?
