Apple’s iPhone goes on sale this evening (June 29) at 6 p.m. local time at Apple stores across the country.
The technology developer said all of its 164 retail locations would remain open until midnight. Customers may buy “up to two iPhones on a first-come, first-served basis,” Apple said.
iPhone introduces a user interface based on a multitouch display and software that allows users to control the unit with a tap, flick or pinch of their fingers. The device acts as a cell phone, a widescreen iPod and an Internet browser, enabling users to access e-mail, maps and Internet sites.
The device is available in a 4 GB model for $499 and an 8 GB model for $599, and will work with either a PC or Mac.
