I was in the Covent Garden store today and I noticed that there was a lot of elderly Indian men in the queue for the iPhone today. Now I would not have really payed it much attention, but I had noticed a similar thing last week when I was there for the opening. They all looked quite out of place, but they all seemed to know each other. I then later noticed in a nearby door way one of these guys (who had been in the store) go up to another younger Indian male give him the boxed iPhone and receive a wad of cash for it. It seems that there is some kind of racket going on where people are being paid to queue up and buy iPhones. My initial thoughts are that these are being shipped in bulk to India for resale, not illegal I suppose, but a bit annoying as if this has been happening in big quantities it is no wonder it was hard to get iPhones in London up until this week.
