    Despite the utterly deplorable weather conditions in London last night, a small horde of dedicated iPhone enthusiasts was seen waiting in front of the local O2 store. Graham Gilbert, 22, officially has the honor of being the first man to be seen waiting for the iPhone in London. Graham has "been looking forward to the iPhone since it was announced in January." Once Graham has an iPhone, he plans to stick with O2, and not unlock/modify his iPhone. He his efforts to unlock the phone would be in vain every time Apple released a firmware update. The Apple iPhone die-hards will be able to get their hands on the iPhone at 6PM tonight, local time.

    Well good on Graham. Perhaps the next thing he should try to get is a friend.

    This first batch of phones will be out of date by February id expect when the 3G version is released but as per usual people love to pay that premium just to be first then complain later.

    To those of you saying the iPhone is just a phone, technically it's more than a phone, a lot more ;)

    So when camping in front of a store, do festival regulations apply? ie plenty of cheap alcohol but no glass on the actual festival (in the store?) terrain? And pissing anywhere you like?

    That's the point, it is more than a phone, more so than other "phone devices"... The iPhone may not be the best in your opinion, but that doesn't mean there isn't a lot of hype built around such a device. Therefore, by you saying it's just a phone your not really thinking about what the iPhone really is. I'm guessing your just hating on people doing this because they are buying a product made by Apple.
