iPhone Officially Official in Japan! 1500 People Waited for It! (Edit)

Hi folks, we’re just back from Harajuku where the new iPhone 3G was officially launched at 7am. Yesterday evening, there were around 1500 people who were waiting for the new iPhone 3G.

As for our “first Japanese iPhone owner”, it was very difficult to interview him due to the huge number of journalists… What we can say? He looked very tired….

There are still Japanese who are waiting in line for the iPhone 3G… We’re not sure if they can buy it today…
We tried calling Softbank to find out how many iPhone they have left, but we couldn’t contact them….

Here are some pictures of iPhone 3G official launch…

Edit: You should also check some very very nice pictures by our friend Dannychoo

Here’s a video of the official launch:

    There will be many uphappy people. The line for Omotesando was over 1km this morning. I went to a smaller store and was 13th in line. Already sold out after 3 units!! Worse yet, no reservations being taken and no idea when new stock will come.
