A BRACE OF STUDENTS have started the queue waiting for the latest Apple iPhone to go on sale in London.
The two young chaps have set up camp outside the central London Apple store with their eyes on the iPhone 5S, the fingerprint scanner-clad version of the Cupertino firm's smartphone.
The Daily Mail went down to see them, and reported that the pair are 17 years old and presumably rather light on hobbies.
Gad Harari and Noah Green told the newspaper that they always get their mitts on the latest iPhones and have already turned down offers of £200 to surrender their space. Hadari reckoned that punters will be lining up to offer him as much as £1,000 as the release gets closer.
"We are always among the first to get a new iPhone. I came down last night to be the first - this time we really wanted to be first. It's how you really show your dedication to Apple products. As well as that, you do have the opportunity to sell your space," said Harari
"I would probably sell my place in the queue for about £1,000. There are crazy people who are willing to do that."
That would be a rather good deal, if you ask us. The queue begins and ends with the pair and should they take an offer for their spot they will probably have to move only a few feet.
Green told the newspaper that he was supposed to be in college, but said that the lure of Apple's technology was too strong to resist.
"I'm really excited. It's going to be incredible, this launch. It's going to be the biggest yet," he said.
"I collect Apple products. I pretty much have everything that Apple makes." µ
