iPhone Bonanza

by mike on June 29, 2007

I was on my way home today when I decided to stop by Subway for a sandwich. I noticed there was a line about 2-3 city blocks long in front of the AT&T store. We all know there has been a ton of iPhone hype, but even out here in suburbia? Yup. People had been waiting for the store to open for at least 3 hours. I know, that’s nothing compared to die-hards in San Fran and NYC that camp out all night. Here’s what I don’t understand. Who has time for this? Don’t these people work for a living? You’d think so given the phone starts at $499. The funny thing is, I doubt everyone on line will get an iPhone. On top of it, the first generation phone will definitely have bugs. The device is also not ready for business productivity (e.g. BlackBerry replacement). Will I get an iPhone? Absolutely, just not yet.
