and why would somebody camp out over night for one???
They're badass, if you're into the tech sort of thing, and they're relatively cheap now at $199.
My phone is on its last legs, and one of these is definitely on my horizon.
My brother gave me an itouch...
What all should I be getting pumped about?
They are badass.
But it's stupid to camp out because the minute that last camper buys his, you can go in and buy one right behind him. THey're not going to sell out.
As for the price, AT&T raised the data/text plan from $20 to $35, so you're paying $15*24 months extra, for a net total of $160 more over the life of the contract.
Well, with 3G and push e-mail, I guess they have the whole, "it uses more bandwidth" excuse.
Nothing because as usual anything that Apple makes is overhyped
'Overhyped' yet still a superior product. I'll take the hype that goes along with it any day.
I would like an Iphone eventually but I am on Verizon... so it happening anytime soon.
With that said... Apple blew it big time.... they could have nailed the market down by having the Iphone available on more than one phone network(AT&T)...
they didnt and now everyone is coming on strong with the "touch phones"... its the future.... and their cut of that pie is relatively small when it could have been a HUGE piece.
Nokia coming on strong.... cant count our Motorola yet either...
This just looks cool as hell. For the technologically ********, the iPhone has motion sensors, so you can turn the phone left and right to control various features. Here, presumably you control the monkey rolling around in the ball.
The only thing that is superior about the iphone is the looks and its user interface. Everything else is the same as what the other manufacturers have in their phones or inferior technology such as the camera and missing mms functionality.
wrong. they are 199 if you are a current at&t customer...alooooot of people will get screwed cuz of it
Well I'll admit I'm technologically ********, I just want to be able to call someone if I absolutely have to, don't care much about monkey balls.
Considering I'm an existing customer, that's not too bad. I pay about the $130/mo now for unlimited minutes and a messaging plan.
Since I happen to like my phone (Sony Ericsson w810i), I probably won't get one...at least for the foreseeable future. So no reason for me to upgrade at the moment.
So how am I wrong again? 199 = 199 last time I checked.
I hate cell phones.
Ok...continue with your discussions.:laugh1:
It could be a tumor :laugh2:
This very funny article from Cracked.com wonderfully sums up the mentality of those who "camp out" for fad items, and why "camping out" has become such a fad in and of itself.
its 499 and 599. its only 199 if you are a current iphone owner and at&t subscriber.
That is like saying the only thing superior about a Porsche is that it looks cool and is fast. Everything else is the same as other cars -- it has wheels, tires, seats, and mirrors.
Or if you sign up for a 2 year contract.
