UPDATE: Now Apple has posted little demo videos on their website, showing you how the iPhone works, how you can scroll through your albums, make phone calls, send emails all by touch. It's knee-weakeningly cool.
I almost never buy first generation tech toys, but I might have to make an exception this time for the iPhone. Mind you, I'm not part of Cingular and I don't currently own an iPod and I don't have a smartphone, so this answers a lot of my needs. $500 is a lot for a cell phone. It's not a lot for a cell phone, an iPod, a digital camera and a PDA. Here are some cool photos. I'm actually surprised it's called an iPhone, since another company has owned that name since 1997. There's no word on whether Apple has made a deal with the company that has owned the rights to iPhone and been selling one for years or whether they're just gonna try bigfooting them in the market and drag it out in court and offer to pay them off later. Finally, you just know version 2.0 is gonna have a bigger harddrive, better features, etc. But I've got $500 in credit at the Apple store so it's either buy a Mac now or wait till June and buy my (first) iPhone, with a new service contract. Hmm. The best reason to buy? It'll make my sister jealous.
