iPod mini sales hot in Japan

“Thousands of people lined up outside electronics stores in Japan on Saturday as Apple Computer launched sales of its iPod Mini digital music player.

About 1,500 people were lined up outside Apple’s store in Tokyo’s Ginza district before the store opened at 10 a.m. Tens of thousands of the devices have already reportedly been reserved by customers.”

“THOUSANDS of people lined up”

“About 1,500 people were lined up”

Both lines appear in that story, which one is correct?

Thousands were lined up all over Japan.  Then, more specifically, 1,500 people were lined up outside Apple’s store in Tokyo’s Ginza district.  Two different ideas there Scooter.

Either way…it looks like there might be a shortage in minis over there as well.  Do you all feel the same way?

The electronics district is called Akihabara and the Apple store is in Ginza.  Both in the greater Tokyo area, but two very different locations, hence, two different queues.
