Unfortunately, I won’t actually possess an iPhone for a couple of weeks.
Pre-ordered (and paid for) the object of my gadget lust at the AT&T store in Boulder. They say 10-20 days for delivery. I could have tried Monday morning at the Apple Store, but, since we’re switching to a new family cell phone plan, it seemed like slightly less hassle to do everything in one place.
I know, I know. “Boys and their toys.” I have a 21 year old television, not a single console game, and this will be my first cell phone that is more than a device for making phone calls.
Also, my visual impairment means I can’t have a sports car for a mid-life crisis. This is cheap compared to one of those. Right?
Update (22 July 2008): It’s already here! Only 3 days! Not bad. AT&T has earned a small measure of goodwill, which they will no doubt sacrifice at some point in the not too distant future, if reports are to be believed. Won’t be able to pick it up until tomorrow, unfortunately. But, well, yippee!!
