iPhone sales: Thousands are lining up outside of Apple stores in big cities around the world to get their hands on the iPhone 4S, the last iPhone unveiled during Steve Jobs's life.
Tokyo and London
Shares of Apple rose 2 percent in early trading after queues wound down the streets of Sydney, Tokyo, London,Paris and Munich to get their hands on the iPhone 4S, despite criticism about the lack of a design revolution and reports of software glitches.
"I am a fan, a big fan. I want something to remember Steve Jobs by," said Haruko Shiraishi, waiting patiently with her Yorkshire terrier Miu Miu at the end of an eight-block queue in Tokyo's smart Ginza shopping district.
In New York, some consumers got up early to buy the phone. While the line outside Apple's flagship Manhattan store no longer extended around the block after a half-hour of sales, more people joined it as the morning progressed.
The new model looks similar to the previous iPhone 4, but has an upgraded camera, faster processor, enhanced security and voice-activated software, which lets users ask the phone questions. The voice software drew glowing reviews.
