    I still don't get people who wait in line for a super long time! I didn't get the Wii and PS3 lines either!

    Well to each their own..I've never been much of a show-off so I never try and get things first...but if I want them I do try and get them within a reasonable time frame! But the only lines I've ever been in are business, grocery and concert lines, i.e. the ones where I had no choice!

    I haven't searched much or watched the videos yet but was wondering if streaming audio was supported (shoutcast, wma, etc...)?

    It's a gorgeous device. I have been tweeking iTunes & iPhone settings. I've got a couple videos, 200 songs, contacts, photos and dates imported.

    The screen is beautiful.

    Typing is easy and it does correct itself if you continue with the misspelled word.

    I CAN type and run the iPhone one-handed.

    The speakers are pretty powerful and clear.

    I'll post again tomorrow.

    It's been a long day. :

    Just left my local AT&T/Cingular store. iPhone...SOLD OUT! The salesperson said they were gone yesterday in 30-minutes. I called the local Apple Store 12 miles away. Sales person said they had a few, but that I should hurry because they were going quick. It appears the Apple Stores had more than the AT&T stores. Someone was saying these things aren't selling. Not true.

    I got a chance to play with the iPhone and I think it lives up to most of the hype. I was surprised at how easy the keyboard was for text entry. EVEN ONE HANDED use! However, you wouldn't want to type an essay on it. I think this it is revolutionary. I think it is going to change mobile like the Mac GUI changed computing. I do not think there will be a backlash as perdicted John Dvorvak. I think you are going to start seeing Nokia, HTC, Motorola, Samsung, Sony RIM and Palm all start to mimic the iPhone feature set and design.

    You have to be kidding about Palm!! They didn't even respond when their true competitor, RIM, put out slimmer cooler BBs!!

    Those other companies probably will not get rid of hard keyboards that soon! Many still need those!

    Not according to the user's manual (page 10), unless you count the earpiece as a "speaker."

    The AT&T store was sold out before I left the mall. Apple still had a line at 8PM EST and was selling iPhones. I don't know if they ever sold out.

    The problem was that many people brought laptops and started connecting their iPhones to TRY to activate them, myself included. Alas, everyone had to await an additional email from AT&T activation. After 35 minutes, I left and got mine much later last night.

    Everyone I've seen today has "ooohhhhh-ed" and "ahhhhhh-ed" at it.

    162 kbit/sec
    164 kbit/sec
    161 kbit/sec

    Done at 100k and 200k tests from dslreports.com/mspeed

    That's faster than on my Treo when I last checked a couple months ago, which was 60's and 80's.

    But have you or anybody checked your treos (or other phones) lately then?! It would kinda suck for existing AT&T EDGE customers if that increase was available only to iPhone accounts!

    For what it's worth, on my Sprint 755P, I got:

    310 kbit/sec (200k test)
    155 kbit/sec (600k test)
    321 kbit/sec (200k test)
    144 kbit/sec (600k test)

    Not sure what that means, exactly, though.
