Who's bying the iPhone?


June 29th at 6:00 PM (local time) the iPhone will be released! I'm so excited...though there are no specs about the AT&T contract (Apple eliminated from the ads the line that said: "2-year contract minimun")
and besides, today...
"Apple® today announced that iPhone™ will deliver significantly longer battery life when it ships on June 29 than was originally estimated when iPhone was unveiled in January. iPhone will feature up to 8 hours of talk time, 6 hours of Internet use, 7 hours of video playback or 24 hours of audio playback.* In addition, iPhone will feature up to 250 hours—more than 10 days—of standby time. Apple also announced that the entire top surface of iPhone, including its stunning 3.5-inch display, has been upgraded from plastic to optical-quality glass to achieve a superior level of scratch resistance and optical clarity." (Apple's PR)


So...who's buying the iPhone and "go ahead 5 years in the cell phone/mp3 player world"??

Waiting for the early-adopters to see how the touch-screen stuff goes.

Meh.....as much of anApple fangirl I am.... I don't wanna start an expensive 2 yr contract with Cingular just to get it. No iPhone for me.

We need a new iMac anyway, rather put the money towards that.

I'd love one, but I'm also in contract w/another cellular provider. I also don't want to spend that much on a phone, but a part of me definitely wants to get sucked into the hype and head to the Apple Store as soon as they're out!

As much as I love Apple products, I'm far too cheap to buy a $600 phone. And, I'm not with Cingular/AT&T.

On the new specs, there's no way it will truly get 250 hours of standby time. My Razr claims 300 hours of standby, and I'm still charging it every 2 days or so (and I don't text message, use the internet, etc., it's used for phone purposes only). I'd love to play with an iPhone, and I might buy one down the road once the price comes down (hopefully that will happen).

AT&T

When it comes to Verizon, I'll start thinking about it.

I have to admit, I got turned on watching the demonstration of someone flipping through the photos... that looks pretty hot.

I don't think it'll be available here in Canada any time soon either

I'm with another provider, and it's too expensive anyway.

I was thinking, if the phone is a touch screen.....when you hold it up to your ear to listen, would that touch it and start a dif command?...

I saw a Keynote Address on the iPhone from Apple and it says that the touch screen senses the difference between fingers and an entire cheek as it were. It "knows" when it's changing from being a touchpad to a phone.

What they can do with technology now!

I want an iPhone, but I just got my provider a year ago and I still have a year on the contract. Maybe once it's done I will switch to at&t. My friend Eric is ordering the phone and switching to at&t when he moves back to Chicago in July. He and I are big Mac people. (he had an iBook and he got me hooked) Now I have a Macbook and he is looking to buy one, too.

As for the iPhone, I think it's amazing! But pricey at this point for normal people. I suppose doing all that with a phone is not normal, but it's a novelty and it's sexy...so people are going to line up for it.
