New iPhone Hits the Streets

So, I was coming up the escalator on the Washington DC metro rail at the Chinatown/Gallery Place Metro and noticed for the first time an AT&T store.  As I got to the top of the escalator, I saw this huge line wrapping around the building.   There must have been 300 people waiting in line and, of course, holding onto their sleeping bags and cots.  It was about 8am and the store had just opened.

When I was coming home tonight, nobody was in line.  So, I’m not sure if they ran out of phones or if the novelty had already worn off by 5pm.   Anyway, the new phone promises to be faster, cheaper, and more functional but my biggest question is … can it read Flash files?!?
