“This morning a huge number of fans, probably around 800 coming from all around Italy (and from other European countries) formed a long queue, first ouside the mall entrance in a parking lot, and then just out the store entrance, patiently waiting for the doors to open,” Macitynet reports.
“After the countdown went to zero, the Apple Store employees lined up in a row cheered customers coming inside,” Macitynet reports. “The store gave away 1000 commemorative T-shirts – running out of them within the first hour.”
