I was talking to a colleague last night about the iPhone and his plans to snag one when they hit stores on Friday. Over the past few weeks, he's gone back and forth on whether or not to go through with it. On one hand they're pricey, first generation and bound to be plagued by bugs. On the other, have you seen this?
Just like the iPod, the iPhone seems like a giant leap forward in its field. I'd love to get my hands on one myself but I'm not about to pay upwards of $499 for a cell phone, even if it can do just about everything my laptop can with an interface straight out of Minority Report.
As a fairly-fervent Apple fan, he's been following rumors surrounding the iPhone from the day it was announced. From what he told me, there’s already around a 100 of them currently in use in the states. Supposedly Steve Jobs personally approved the release of each one as part of an effort to test the network AT&T will be running them on. I’m not willing to separate fact from fiction but, at the very least, it looks like this guy is running around with one.
