Not content with discovering Sydney’s best burger, local startup Airtasker is proving to be the best way to get an iPhone 5 when they launch on Friday, letting you outsource your queueing to someone else.
For as little as $50, Airtasker users can pay someone else to join the lineup outside an Apple Store to purchase an iPhone 5, holding your place so you can simply mosey up to the front of the queue when it’s your turn in line.
Given Apple had over two million pre-orders for this generation of its iconic smartphone, and all the Telcos have already allocated all of their pre-order stock, lining up is quite possibly the only way to get your hands on a unit on launch day.
