Apple's iPhone 5 out today
It's finally here: the iPhone 5. It's said to be the fastest, thinnest, lightest phone Apple has to offer. People camped out at stores before their doors even opened to be one of the first to get their hands on the new phone. Our Megan Cruz joined up with some iPhone fans who say the wait was worth it.

COLONIE, N.Y. -- "It's so light! Mine's so heavy!" said new iPhone owner, Levade Wright.
"I have the 3GS, and I kind of waited out the 4G phones, so this is going to be huge," said Arianna Komninos.
"Huge upgrade!" said Mike Farinaccio. "Can't wait to go home right now and mess around with it and see what it's got on it."
It seems like everyone's talking about it: the iPhone 5. It was released in stores Friday to eager customers who are excited about the new features.
"It's definitely going to be the speed!" said Komninos.
"So I could surf the web faster! Do everything faster!" said Farinaccio.
"The camera, that you can move with it," said Levade.
Dozens lined up at stores hours before they opened, some as early as 2:30 a.m. They said pre-ordering online wasn't an option.
Levade said, "Three weeks wait? No!"
"I think it's weird," said Sarah King. "It's a lot to do for a phone, but if you want it bad enough."
"Maybe a little bit, but a least I got the phone!" said Farinaccio.
Because they say that's a big reason for why they wanted the phone: to brag.
"I work at an office where we all really like technology so I think everyone's going to be 'ooohing' and 'ahhhing' over it," said Komninos.
"I got an iPhone 5, you don't!" teased Farinaccio.
The brand new owners say they're looking forward to hours of anti-social fun.
"Like the 3GS came out, and we were both nonstop on our phones. We were like not talking to each other, being like, whoa! Look at this feature! We're probably going to do the same thing," said Levade.
