The first person is already in the queue for an iPhone 5

Fanboyism gone mad? Here’s a man who really, really wants to be the first to get an iPhone 5

This is Rob Shoesmith, the first person in the queue for the as-yet-unannounced iPhone 5. He’ll be waiting in that line (well, line-to-be) until the doors officially swing open for the first customers to run in and buy Apple’s latest smartphone, come wind, rain and snow.

Luckily, our Rob’s got a load of tech on his side, and he’ll be writing an exclusive daily blog for charting his progress. Course, if the Apple Store starts selling the iPhone 5 (or iPhone 4S) tomorrow, it won’t be much of a story. But we think Rob’s going to be in for a longer wait than that.

Keep up to date on Rob’s queueing activities by checking daily or visiting Rob’s own iPhone 5 Experiment site. Oh, and wish him luck…
