Customers Wait In Line For New iPhone

SAN JOSE, Calif. (AP) - Apple's newest iPhone goes on sale today
in the U.S. The 3G phone is touted by Apple as running at twice the
speed of the first generation phone. As it tries to woo consumers,
it has cut the price. The entry level phone is $199 for an 8
gigabyte model.

That's compared to the $599 pricetag when the earlier version
phone was launched last year.

Along with working on third-generation wireless networks, the
new iPhone includes improved support for Microsoft's widely used
Exchange corporate e-mail program.

In addition, Apple is allowing third-party developers to build
applications for the iPhone.

Apple says it has sold about 6 million iPhones since last year.
It hopes to sell 10 million by the end of 2008.
