Dallas Man Already in Line for an iPhone 4 a Week Before it Launches
The iPhone 4 doesn’t officially launch until June 24th, but as of last night, one man has been camped out in front of the Apple store in Dallas, Texas.
In a MacRumors comment, he explains why:
Some would say I am crazy, but I say I’m a very determined fan. In fact I just might be one the biggest Apple fans you will actually meet. I have been the first costumer for this store since 2008 when the iPhone 3G was released.
Normally I only camp out over night, but since I do not work due to the fact I am disabled with a seizure disorder and I am not in school at the point, I figure I just make it a fun experience and do it for a week.
Yes I did reserve a phone, but again, I’m doing it for a fun experience. I haven’t had a trip or vacation in past 10 years so I figured I make it a full week camping trip.
My setup and location has everything I could need to live for a week, even in the Texas heat. Tent is packed with a sleeping gear, a chair, full ice chest of drinks and food, and the Apple staff have been very nice to me treating me like a king. LOL I also brought a extension power cord for phone charging and things that need power. There is even a portable toilet around the back of the store if needed.
That been said, I’m actually doing really well out here. If anyone gets a chance, come join the fun!
This is what his camping setup looks like:
Devotion, or supreme foolishness? Either way, he plans to keep us updated at this MacRumors thread.
