iPhone Excitement

Rob Pegoraro

LAS VEGAS - Apple's announcement of the magical-looking iPhone this morning is getting some attention here. As I was charging up my Treo at the Sprint store and service center located at the Sprint-sponsored monorail station outside the convention center, one of the salespeople came out from the office to tell his colleagues about Apple releasing the iPhone.

Meanwhile, I've gotten the following two text messages from friends:

"Phone looks cool. The Treo is so last year."

"you preorder your iphone yet?"

I wouldn't change to Cingular for _any_ phone. The last time I checked, they had poor satisfaction ratings with both J.D. Powers and Consumer Reports.

The real-world performance and durability of the iPhone are unknown.

(Among many other things, will the touch screen end up getting covered with scratches and finger prints?)

I'm ready to order the iPhone yesterday, Cingular may not be great but then what carrier is when the phones they offer aren't all that great either. I've had an iPod for a few years now and if the phone works half as well I'll be happy.
