iPhone 5: First in line at Covent Garden
Apple and Jaguar enthusiast Norman Hicks of Orpington, Kent, is first in the queue at the Covent Garden Apple Store. He is planning on snapping up a gold 5S in order to auction it for charity on behalf of the Jaguar Enthusiasts' Club. Norman isn't a stranger to his tent: He was camped outside Buckingham Palace for the royal wedding a few months ago. Roughing it is a bit easier in Covent Garden, it seems. He's been assured of a phone, obviously, but the Apple staff are being supportive. A helpful blueshirt will come out to stand watch over his little home while he uses the facilities. All very civilised, but far too adventurous for me.
