Albany -- The countdown for the apple I-phone is over and some patient South Georgians became the first in our area to get their hands on one.

The line at the AT&T store on North Westover Boulevard was long late this afternoon. It wrapped around the building. About 50 people were waiting for the doors to open at six.

An Albany police officer patrolled the scene, but the excited crowd never got rowdy. In fact those in line describe the experience as pleasant.

"We're all getting along. We had pizza, drinks. Someone brought us drinks and we've just had a blast," said school teacher Debra Johnson.

The I-phone does much more than just make phone calls. "It's the first wide screen I-pod that have been available. It has a desk top class email, desk top class Internet, "said AT&T store manager. "As well as break through features on the phone side like digital voice mail."

The high-tech gadget comes in eight gigabyte and four gigabyte models. The eight gig will cost you about six hundred dollars. The four gig runs about five hundred dollars.
