Two Days Before the iPhone 3G’s Official Launch in Harajuku (Tokyo), Japanese Are Queuing Up!
As everyone knows, in two days we will finally have the long-awaited iPhone 3G. We went to Harajuku, Tokyo’s electronic geek district, where the iPhone 3G will be initially released in Japan to measure the temperature.
At that moment there were 26 eager buyers (not huge, I admit it) waiting in front of a Softbank shop, some traveled from far away. There was one future iPhone 3G owner who journeyed all the way from Nagoya and arrived in Harajuku at 6AM yesterday. This student, a Computer Science major, is an Apple fan, and owns an iMac, Mac mini, MacBook Pro, Ipod Touch, and an Apple T-shirt… He intends to purchase the 16GB version in White… So, why White?
“The iPhone’s back is white while the opposite face is black. It reminds me of a panda, and I like pandas…”
The customer, a young student who didn’t want to appear in our pictures (it’s understandable if this young man is skipping class…) is also a big fan of Apple (Owner of a MacBook Air, Ipod….). He also chose the 16GB iPhone 3G version in White, but gave us a more traditional answer: “It allows me access to my music, videos, photos, games, and the Internet without having to use my PC, my PSP, my phone…”
Overall, we noticed that they are true Apple lovers, who want to mainly surf the Net. Some of them have nice girlfriends who expect to bring them food in the evening…
Here you are, the future first Japanese iPhone 3G owner
