The much anticipated iPhone 4 went on sale in Apple Stores nationwide Thursday morning at 7 a.m. A Las Vegas Sun reporter camped out at the Apple Store in Town Square - the only Apple Store in Las Vegas to allow customers to line up Wednesday night. Getting there at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday made her fifth in line and gave her the perfect vantage point to document the next 12 hours of more than 600 fiercely loyal Apple fans wrapped in an endless line around the mall, nerd-aimed insults from passersby, families sleeping on mattresses in the bed of their pickups, and the jubilant moment when Apple's doors opened and the first customer showed off his iPhone 4's higher-resolution display, high-definition video recording and editing, multitasking capability, camera flash, and front-facing camera for video calls and easy self-portraits.
