Waiting for an iPhone.


Waiting for an iPhone. It’s July 11, 2008 and I moseys on over in the mid-morning to my local AT&T store, figuring that the early rush for new iPhones in this rural county would have died down a bit. Instead what I found was a line of people stretching around three sides of the building. A quick inquiry with members of this queue let me know that the 8 GB models were already sold out, so this line was holding out for 16GB version.

Half an hour goes by. Having moved around the corner, I hear an employee tell someone that UPS just came and “now they have phones.” we’ll see.

Fifteen minutes later, we saw. Out of phones, come back tomorrow, or else come in and order your phone & we’ll have it dropshipped to you. I opted to jump out of line and go back later, maybe next Tuesday.

  1. Except for the being free part (not quite true, since Android is software and you still have to buy a phone to run it on), it looks to me like all the functionality being promoted for Android is already there even for the most part on my old iPhone with the new iPhone 2.0…. including the user-as-developer extensibility.

    Nice to hear from you, btw. 😉
