Wes Krosniki won’t be in it, but he wishes he were.
"Just financial concerns, other than that I'd be the first one in line. I'm a fan," said Krosniki.
So what’s all the hype about? Last week, Apple took the wraps off its iPhone 5 and showed off more than 200 new features in its iOS 6 operating system which includes higher resolution and a thinner, bigger screen.
Expectations are running high that Apple will sell tens of millions of iPhone 5 within a few weeks, blowing past previous sales.
There is such a high demand it has exceeded supply. Those ordering the phone online now may have a three to four week wait for their purchase to arrive.
