The iPhone looks awesome, but I think the price-tag is a bit too high for me.

Additionally, my employer may reimburse my mobile phone bill in the future and they require another provider, so I'd rather not lock myself into a 2 year contract with AT&T and then lose out on the possibility of mobile phone reimbursement through my work...

He wouldn't buy it for himself. It would be for some chick.

According to this, the iPhone cost Apple only $220 to make.

What a rip off.

iPhone-like phones are on the way from Samsung and other manufacturers. This means we'll probably be able to get a similar phone (touch screen, etc) for around $250. Maybe even less with a 2 year agreement.

I just read this little darling article about how it took over 39 hours to get an iPhone activated.

Amazing little wonder.. there's a gazillion iPhones on eBay now, and the price seems to be more realistic than with the previous PS3 craze... :D

So much hype surrounding the iPhone, much like the PS3. And look, the PS3 has been a failure up until this point. Surely the iPhone will be much more successful, but I prefer saving my cash for what Apple will release in the future. Here is a sneak peak on the Late Show with David Letterman.
No, I like women.

There were times, during my 3 years with Cingular (now AT&T.. or something) I would've paid $600 to get the hell off their network.

I don't care about the iPhone, really, but even if I did- there isn't anything that would get me back on Cingular.
