East Texans Wait In Line For Release Of Iphone

People all over the country are at home fooling around with the new Apple Iphone.   Earlier Friday, some dozen East Texans even sat in line outside the AT&T store on South Broadway in Tyler, waiting for the much-anticipated gadget. The first person had been there since last night. The Iphone combines e-mail, web browsing, music and videos and the price starts at $499. 

Russell Hene, who was third in line, says, "it's kind of perfect for me because my phone broke and my Ipod's kind of broke also so this is just kind of combining everything in one and it's perfect." 

AT&T stores nationwide closed Friday from 4:30 to 6:00 just to prepare for the Iphone's release.
