housands across the world have been in line for days for Friday morning's release of the iPhone 5, which goes on sale at 8 a.m. local time in the U.S., Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Japan, Singapore, and the U.K. The phones are likely to fly off the shelves. Apple sold more than 2 million pre-orders for the device in the first 24 hours this week. Industry analysts say the company could sell as many as 10 million iPhone 5s by Monday morning.
