With Apple’s iPhone advertising running in high gear for months, its no wonder that so many people felt they had to have one. Its estimated that Apple sold about a half million units in just a few days, mostly being gobbled up by Apple faithful and those hoping to resell them quickly on Ebay.
However, I am glad that I was not one of the people that stood in line for upwards of 18 hours to plunk down $600 for my little slice of the latest and greatest. There were several reports of people that did just that and then were unable to use the iPhone because of a glitch with the AT&T service (although AT&T says these problems are resolved now).
Nevertheless, $600 for the iPhone plus $60 a month with AT&T’s spotty service (in my area, anyway) is a bit much for me. I think I will wait for the iPhone version 2 after they have worked out most of the bugs.
