My old cell phone is slowly dying, I’m already an AT&T customer, and (usable) mobile Internet anywhere is almost a must have feature for somebody who does what I do. So I really want an iPhone.
But I’m not crazy.
There was no way I was going to wait in a line on Friday for something I could walk right in and purchase the next day, but the lines at the various Seattle area Apple stores don’t seem to have shortened over the weekend, even as they’ve gradually run out of the most popular models. New supplies are scheduled to arrive daily, but in calling around to the various stores they all seem to expect the current iPhone mania to continue unabated for days to come. Supply is apparently not an issue; they simply cannot sell and activate the phones fast enough to keep up with demand.
I suppose I’ll just have to make due for now with a phone that’s just phone. But if any of you have scored a new iPhone please feel free to taunt me in the comment threads.
