People Flock to Stores for iPhone 5

Posted: Updated:

It's just a cellphone, but you wouldn't think so with the way people lined up for the new iPhone 5 Friday morning in Charlottesville.

By 7:00 a.m., the line wrapped around the AT&T store on Emmett Street.  The iPhone 5 has a larger, four-inch screen.  It's also slimmer and lighter, and comes with an eight-megapixel iSight camera.

The AT&T store says they don't expect to see any more crowds, but they are fully staffed just in case.  Mikiyas Tsegaya, who bought the iPhone 5, said, "I thought I'd have to wait but it's pretty quick, pretty painless."

The AT&T store will stay open Friday until 9 p.m.
