Japan: Deadly typhoon fails to rain on iPhone fanatics' parade

The remnants of a typhoon weren't enough to deter eager customers in Tokyo's trendy Ginza district from waiting in line for days to get their hands on the new Apple iPhone 5S and 5C, which went on sale Friday. Some customers had been waiting in line since last week, when Typhoon Man-yi battered the country killing two people, injuring dozens and forcing thousands to evacuate.

Apple's iPhone 5S boasts more than 200 new features. Apple says the 5S has control and notification centres, improved multitasking, AirDrop, enhanced photos, Safari, Siri and also introduces iTunes RadioSM, a free Internet radio service based on the music a customer listens to on iTunes.

The 5S is Apple's fastest and most advanced phone on the market, reportedly doubling the speed of its predecessor the iPhone 5.
