(KHNL) - The countdown is on!  In less than 24 hours, the new "must have gadget" -- the I-Phone will soon make it's debut. It's a sleek and slim music player that lets you shuffle through album covers.

It's a camera with a hands-on photo displayer that you control by pinching and touching.

It's also a computer-like web browser and video player.  And don't forget, a cell phone all rolled into one.

"It is very expensive compared to typical average phones that folks have, but the market they're going after is used to spending a couple of hundred bucks on a smart phone, so, if you have this kind of money to spend, that's who they're going after," said Walter Mossberg of the Wall Street Journal.

The I-Phones are on a first come first served basis and will only be issued one per customer.

All AT&T and Apple Stores in Hawaii will temporarily close between the hours of 4:30 pm and 6 pm.

The stores will reopen again at 6 for the I-Pod world premiere.
