iPhone 5 goes on sale today
There will be queues today in front of Apple stores throughout the U.S., and it doesn't take a genius to figure out what gadget these people are going to walk out with. Of course, every single person will be there to get their hands on the iPhone 5, which is going on sale today in the U.S., the U.K., Canada, France, Germany, and other major markets. 

After accepting millions of pre-orders, Apple is releasing its latest and greatest smartphone through retailers, so you can also grab one from your local Apple store. Folks in Japan and Australia have already purchased theirs, thus gaining bragging rights for being among the first people to own an iPhone 5. Alternatively, the iPhone 5 can be purchased online, in case don't feel like going out. However, be prepared for a lengthy wait as the parcel will ship in three to four weeks if ordered today, due to the huge demand Apple has to cope with. 

Pricing is set as usual: $199 and a 2-year contract can get you a 16GB iPhone 5, in either black or white, with a data plan from AT&T, Verizon, or Sprint. For $299 or $399, one can get an iPhone 5 with 32 or 64 gigabytes of storage respectively.

After the initial rollout, Apple will release the iPhone 5 in 22 additional markets: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Liechtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

I want it, just for the sake of adding it to my collection. I like to have the best of each of the big three OS's.

It's a shame that android users take every opportunity to post negative on apple articles. If u hate apple so much just ignore them, y even go thru the trouble of opening the article reading it, and leaving a post? Let the people who enjoy apple also enjoy this site without ur stupidity, and insults.

Agreed, it's the main reason I don't comment on here that often. What I say will either be called out as biased, or some one will say a bunch of stupid nonsense underneath. They have gotten a lot better at moderating it though.

Face it. its the only truth. its nothing new. They Troll. bash . insult. humiliate. and call nasty names. but that is the truth. Phonearena members are very smart. just like GSMArena. Engadget and others. They have no genral knowledge about anything. and there all middle age users. They never joke about or post funny things. So the truth is PA GSMArena users always bash Apple articles. so just to make them aware and enlighten them and come to reality out from prison os.

There are only very small queues or no queues in London. How does it look like in different cities around the world.
Please let me know.
