Ok, the iPhone is out tomorrow, and I have devised a plan to get one at a local mall. No guarantees obviously, but luckily my workplace is lax enough to let me leave early (around 12) and queue up with the rest of the anxious people waiting to get their filthy mitts on that technological doodad.
I have had bad luck with electronics in the past, but hopefully that is not the case this time around. This freakin phone costs a pretty penny, and that pretty penny is enough to (literally) feed a starving family in the Philippines for a month, if not more. Morality issues aside, I have decided that I will get the phone, even if it means switching up mobile carriers (like I did before with the first sidekick from T-Mobile). Ironically, I'm going back to Cingular/AT&T/Pac Bell Wireless (when my plan was only 20 bucks a month for everything I get now at over 50 bucks a month).
So yeah, it is very impractical and even fringing on unnecessary, but hey, if it makes you happy, nobody gets hurt (except maybe your wallet) and you can afford it, than why not?

I have been tinkering with the iPhone all day and these are my first impressions:
I think it's a great convergence device. Is there anything I would alter or improve in iPhone2? Of course, primarily a better camera, video recording capability, a faster network and more personalization in terms of itunes, just to name a few.
But regardless, I firmly believe that Apple has just taken the bar for phones on a whole new level and now it's time for everyone else to take their respective phones in a new, inventive and fun direction. At least, more so than they might think they already have.
