As you can see in the pic over at the Fortune blog Apple2.0 the folk of New York are still lining up and waiting for hours to buy an iPhone. Like all things outside of New Zealand relating to America (American Football for instance), Kiwis have little appreciation for how different things are over in the states. And the obsession with the iPhone and increasingly the Apple brand are just never understood here.
You can more or less walk into any of the resellers stocking the iPhone in New Zealand and within a few minutes can walk out (minus too much money) with an iPhone.
So 14 days after the launch of the iPhone they are still standing in line for up to 4 and a half hours around the flagship 5th Avenue Apple store.
