It's kinda like aol was when it first came out. Pretty interface for the web and all. Made for average non techies to use. Limited and clearly aimed at sucking your wallet dry.
Apple's biggest problem will be keeping up as others introduce full screen phones that are more open, not tied to one lousy carrier, more simplified, and have many more features. The "cool" factor won't last long.

Have you looked at the other "new" touchscreen phones. Lots of erratic behavior and even the previews show users having to touch multiple times to get the phone to register the request. Also, no multi-touch as Apple has that locked up.
The iPhone is awesome, but I'm waiting for the lawsuits to start when it becomes an official "platform" with many millions of users. Remember all the crap that M$ got sued for doing? Apple is going right down the same road with their App Store policies (or lack thereof) and behavior.
IMO, that is why Jobs is both a genius and ****** at the same time.

I don't know if I would say I feel special really, but I do feel like it's an instant connection when you see other people who have one. Although I feel like that connection has been getting weaker and weaker as more and more people have them. It used to be anyone who had one loved it and knew everything about it, now I see people who have them that barely even can use them.

I have the iPhoney and the Blackberry BOLD. The only reason I feel "special" with the iPhoney is because other people make it out to be a big deal. The real truth is the iphoney is just average. If it wasn't for the cutesy apps, I wouldn't care for it at all. In fact, I only had it 3 days when I found out what all it COULDN'T do.
After that 3rd day, it went into a shopping bag in the bottom of my closet and has been reduced to my back-up phone.
My 7 yr old son is a Star Wars FREAK, so I HAD to get it back out and put the Light Saber on it for him. So, for this week, I'm back on this site trying to find out if there's been any improvements in the areas its been lacking in.

It makes me feel good. Priveleged actually. It's a innovative device and to own one myself is pretty cool. Regardless if millions own it.
It does suck though, I met my share of cocky iPhone users. It's the "I want the latest device, mommy I have to have it, look at me it matches my clothes" kinda person. It's quite comical. I just laugh. I'm pretty humble. People like that give iPhone users a bad rep. Just laugh like I do and ignore em.

Honestly now that it is much cheaper I see people with iPhones ALL the time. That doesn't take away from the fact that it is the single greatest device in the world, but it does take away slightly from the exclusivity that it held the first month or two that it was out.
