One man line for Apple iPhone 5S forms in Tokyo

One man line for Apple iPhone 5S forms in Tokyo
Now that the Apple iPhone 5S and Apple iPhone 5C have been introduced, it means that Apple has done its part. The next course of action is up to the legions of Apple iPhone fans willing to do just about anything to get their hands on the latest iteration of the phone. At least one Tokyo man is planning on waiting in line over the next 10 days in order to be among the first in the country to sport the latest iPhone, fingerprint sensor and all. 44 year old Japanese businessman, Tetsuya Tamura, is looking to replace his Apple iPhone 4.

Thanks to social media, you can follow this man's battle with boredom, long lonely nights, dealing with the weather and the call of nature. His Twitter handle is @Xxxprius and you can follow his progress as he sits in front of the Ginza Apple Store. He has already admitted that the journey he faces is a tough one.

For now, the prospective Apple iPhone 5S buyer has set up a little table with an Apple iPad and has already entertained the media. As we get closer to September 20th, he should have some more line-sitters to talk with. Meanwhile, at the other end of the world, the line has already started to form in front of the 5th Avenue Apple Store in New York.
