Waiting on an iPhone
​Steve Jobs must be a happy man today. With the release of the new iPhone 4g he has customers lining up in the hundreds outside of stores.

At the Memorial City Mall in Houston customers are finding themselves camping out inside the mall in two groups of long lines.

"We been waiting here since 4:30 a.m...we drove by at 12:30 a.m. and the line was not that long so we decided to get a few hours of sleep before coming back up," said Sara Boston.

This is not the first time that she has been waiting outside of an Apple store for a new phone.

"I did this same line when the first iPhone came out and I think that it was four hours, five at the max," she said while seated in her chair

"I Just hope it works." she added.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
