Friday, June 29th, I happened to find myself in Beverly Hills to meet some friends for dinner. We arrived early, so we decided to go to a nearby mall to kill some time. We got on the elevator and as the doors opened, proof of the iPhone hype was immediately confirmed. A swarm of people had been waiting in line since 6:30am for the new Apple iPhone, and the actual launch was minutes away. I snapped this picture to capture the moment.
I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t interested in the Apple iPhone. After all, it is fully converged! So now the question is… will the cost of the iPhone + the cost of breaking my VZW contract be worth it? The investigation begins… I did find this handy iPhone availability checker which shows which stores have iPhones. The list is updated nightly.
