    In Europe, it seems like the iPhone is greeted with nothing but tribulation and joy. After initial sales figures of 10,000 units were reported in the mid-afternoon of the first day of sales in Germany, one of the CEOs of T-mobile exclaimed "we're delighted". British sales were not much different. After stores opened their doors to queues seen camping out overnight, the BBC recorded scenes of "mayhem" in London. The iPhone goes on sale in France on November 29th, twenty days later than it did in Germany and the UK. However, the wait will be worth it: by French law, all mobile phones sold in France must come unlocked, to join whatever network the French customer chooses. Apple is working closely with French telecom companies to make sure that French iPhones do not make their way out of France, where a factory-unlocked iPhone would fetch a pretty penny.

    Im happy with what IVe seen from the Iphone. I think its a pretty nifty piece of hardware with just some outdated technology for the price. I really like the touchscreen as I think its the coolest thing to come with it :)

    I'm more than happy with what I've heard of the iPhone. Everyone I've known that owns one is also happy with the iPhone.

    Something is wrong with you. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
