While that photo showed very few people in line for the iPhone 3GS at that particular store, check this out:
Update: According to O2, sales for the 3G S have already surpassed numbers for the iPhone 3G during last year's launch. Looks like pre-orders were in full effect here.
So, year one the iPhone was a massive hit. Year two, the iPhone 3G was an even bigger hit and outsold the original iPhone. Year three (and on launch day, today), and the iPhone 3GS is an even bigger hit! It has reportedly already sold more than last year on launch day. So while the lines may be shorter (and not all of them are), the sales are huge!
I love my BB, but I miss some of the capabilities of the iPhone. What really amazes me, though, is regardless of your stance on the iPhone, you can't deny the incredible sales these things generate.
Now where is RIM's new OS?

"Wow" is now overused. Therefore, I will use "Magic bananas" instead.
