iPhone 5 Launches in NYC

It's a beautiful day to buy a new iPhone 5 in New York this Friday.

The sun shone on crowds at the 14th Street Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) store in Chelsea's trendy meat-packing district this bright morning. Lesser -- but still significant -- queues of people were lined up outside AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) and Verizon Wireless stores on 34th Street to get the first 4G Long Term Evolution (LTE) smartphone from Apple.

Two of the six people we asked at the Apple store were familiar with what LTE is; all knew the new phone is 4G. Most said they were buying simply to replace an older iPhone.

"Mine was old and kind of broken," said Jeremy Schoenerr, a developer, of his reason for upgrading to the iPhone 5 from a 4. He needed access to able access iOS 6, he added.

Well I strive for the vibrant colors of Frank Perry films like "The Swimmer" myself. But I mocked something up for you anyway. I had to do it in Paint since I don't have Photoshop on this computer. But I'll have the new edition of Photoshop Touch that comes installed on a Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 If you're offering, thanks Dennis!!!

These photos look a lot like the ones from the last iPhone launch. Maybe with some Photoshop to change the sky conditions.
