The world's first iPhone 3G purchaser as device on sale in NZ

 You are staring at iPhone Jonny – he’s the first person in the world to buy an iPhone (we think), and was photographed queuing outside his local Vodafone store yesterday – thanks EnGadget (maybe you’ll link back to us one day, hey?) – waiting at the head of the queue to pick up his iPhone.

Now he has. Yes, you heard us right – the iPhone 3G went on sale today, but in fact it is tomorrow it goes on sale – except in New Zealand, where it’s tomorrow already! Sometimes time zones are kind of exciting.

Parts of Australia will now be getting the iPhone 3G as they have a few hours difference to New Zealand. And then it invades the rest of the world as the dawn of the new day breaks….

So, Jonny has his iPhone 3G – congratulations, Jonny, drop us a line if you come across us, we think the whole world wants to know what you – someone who isn’t a highly-paid journalist working for some major media outlet – think of your new purchase!

What’s going to be frustrating for New Zealand’s iPod touch owners is that there’s no sign yet of iPhone Software Update 2.0, which you need to actually install and use applications on the iPhone or iPod touch.

Never mind, though – the software has escaped, you can download it now, but will have to install it manually, check here for the link and the details.
