A faster iPhone with better software and an improved camera went on sale Friday as hundreds of buyers camped out for hours to be among the first to get one.

About 200 people were at Apple’s Fifth Avenue store in Manhattan as the iPhone 4S went on sale at 8 a.m.Steve Wozniak, who created Apple with Steve Jobs in a Silicon Valley garage in 1976, was first in line at a store in Los Gatos, Calif.

Demand for Apple’s new iPhone, combined with buyers’ hunger for rival devices, could push worldwide smartphone ownership above the 50% mark for the first time ever.

Pre-orders for the phone from carriers AT&T, Sprint and Verizon are as good as sold out; and online orders from the carriers and Apple are backed up, with delivery promised by the end of the month at the latest.
