BGR on Tuesday gave the world its first look at what’s inside Apple’s (AAPL) retail packaging for the iPhone 5, but now that early reviews are in, carriers seem to be getting just as excited as consumers. More so, perhaps, considering how many iPhones they’re about to sell. One carrier that appears to be even more excited than most is Vodafone Germany, which couldn’t wait until launch day this Friday to share an official unboxing video with the world. There are no surprises to be found in the video, of course — just an overly enthusiastic carrier rep and an iPhone 5. The full unboxing video follows below.
