7/11 = 3G

iPhone 3G madness has struck Boston. This morning our team of reporters fanned out across the city —well, okay, just across Boylston Street in Boston and the Cambridgeside Galleria in Cambridge—to snap a few pictures of the lines of eager iPhone 3G buyers assembling outside Apple and AT&T retail locations. We even managed to escape from the Cambridgeside Galleria before the Segway-borne security guards confiscated our cameras. Scroll down to see the pictures, and click on each picture to see a larger version.

One response to “7/11 = 3G”

  1. I recently bought a Kindle, and found that from inside my house in Lexington MA, it cannot talk to the Sprint 3G network. It has to fall back to their 1x network. For the Kindle, this really makes no difference, since downloading a book is very few bits. I wonder if I’ll be able to get 3G from home when I buy my new iPhone (I’m waiting for the lines to subside a bit)?
