No long lines for Verizon iPhone 4

Verizonline This wasn't the usual iPhone Launch Day dance. Lines were short and only a few camped out in the wee hours, compared to the thousands that were in line this summer when the iPhone 4 first launched.

This time, for Verizon's iPhone 4 store launch, the lines were modest. About 20 people or so at the busiest South Florida Verizon stores. And various reports in other areas say the same -- not many people waited in line for the doors to open at 7 a.m.

Verizonladies It's not as big of a store event because it's not a brand-new version of the iPhone. Rather, it's similar to the version that AT&T customers have had since last summer. And there were opportunities to order online instead of camping out. It went on sale to everyone Wednesday online, and on Feb. 3 to existing Verizon customers.

Here's the early report from this morning's launch: Crowds small for Verizon iPhone 4 launch
