The iPhone...

Any early adopters here?

It looks cool but I'm not that rich to spend $600 for a fancy phone that seems more like an addictive toy

I'd love to have one, but $500 + switching providers + outrageous calling plan = no iPhone for me.

I'm mostly concerned about the battery. This is largely the phone I've been waiting YEARS for but I'm probably going to wait for gen2.

I'd like one but I have a phone as well as an iPod and therefore have no real use for it.

I don't even use my cell phone that much anyway, so im not getting one. It seems cool and all but buying a new type of electronic when it first comes out is always a mistake cause theres always some kind of hardware defect or programming glitch they weren't able to catch. Same thing with new generation cars, it's better to just wait a year for them to perfect it.

Not even thought about it. A phone is a phone. It makes calls and sends messages. And mine still works. So I don't need a new one.

I don't quite get this phone as a toy thing. It's a tool. It has a job and that's all it needs to do. My computer is for the stuff computers do. My camera is for the stuff cameras do. My walkman does what music players do. And my phone does what phones do.

I'll assume this is all because it says you're from England, and if so, its proof the English have a lot more common sense.

Well the iPhone is a good idea. Instead of carrying around a PDA, a music player, and a phone, you can put it all in one nice small package. Of course, I'm more interested in what kind of exploits this thing has than using it as an actual phone
