Since I come here for all my tech-related info, I was interested to know whether or not any Ws plan on getting the iPhone. At $499, it's seems kinda pricey, but my interest is piqued.

After reading a story in USA Today about it, it doesn't appear that demand will be an issue for them. Given that, I probably won't be buying one for awhile at least, if at all.

How about you?

I watch my TV and movies on a TV, do my internet browsing and email on a computer, and I play my games on a combination of the two (old fashioned, I know).

I buy my cell phones based on the carrier and if they can make/receive calls. I leave my photography to my Cannon SLR.

I'm definitely getting one. The pricing of the plans by AT&T will determine how soon I get one.

My iPod is old and nearing retirement anyway, as is my cell phone, so it's an even easier decision for me than it would have been.

I'm also just an Apple fanboy, so they could release a collection of Steve Jobs' dirty laundry and I may buy it.

- I work for a phone company that isn't going to be selling it
- I've got a work-provided cell phone which is fine for all I use it, which isn't much
- I just got a new iPod anyway

Only after it goes through some model upgrades. It's too new for me to gamble $500 on it working properly.

Nah. I had a hard enough time justifying spending $100 on my current cellphone, I can't imagine what it would take for me to spend $500. There's just nothing there I need, and the frivolous stuff I don't particularily want in my phone.

Nope. I'd be afraid to ever take it out of the house with me at that price, and obviously if that's the case, there's no purpose for me to own it.

Man, for the amount of time I drop my phone? Not on your life. I'll wait until I get it as a free upgrade in a few years.

Yeah, it should, but we don't live in Shouldland! Ah, Shouldland, where clean-cut kids cruise Shouldland Boulevard, and the Shouldland High football team gets their optimistic asses kicked by their crosstown rival, Reality Check Tech.

Nope. If what I read is correct, it won't be released for my cellphone carrier...and I'm in no rush to switch. Sorry, Rogers Wireless, you suck.

I'm sure it's a great MP3 player...but I have one of those in the form of a 30 GB iPod. Call me old-fashioned, but I'd just like a phone that works.

I hate my regular cell phone. I have no need for this.

Nope. It's too costly for me and I rarely use a cell phone as it is.

No kidding. I signed up for a free trial for a local paper back East, and their service was terrible: missing papers, late deliveries...
