iPhone 5 release draws lines in Henrico

HENRICO (WTVR) – It’s a big day for Apple.

People were lined up outside of the Henrico Verizon store as early as 3:30 a.m. on Friday, waiting for the iPhone 5 to be released.

Apple says it’s the company’s thinnest and fastest iPhone yet, and has already broken sales records.

Pre-orders for the iPhone 5 topped $2-million in just 24 hours.

Analysts expect the company to sell between five and eight million of the devices on Friday, its release day, alone.
