    I think the month will be used to finish up any testing and to give devs more time to finish apps.

    Better to have a bugless functioning device than to have it rushed out like the first iPhone. Am I right?

    This isn't anything new though. Think about it, with any other cell phone, they advertise it very cheaply or even "Free Cell Phone", although it always comes bundled with a required plan.

    yeah true, i think its a great step forward for apple and they are certainly very good at selling their product. I admire there way of selling, however i do feel they are a bit harsh with restrictions, especially in the US. Luckily we in the Uk have more of a choice. But i guess £35 a month isnt that bad for the best phone out there at this time.

    It's not bad at all, considering that the 3G iPhone has many more features than a regular 3G cell phone, or a normal cell phone.

    What?

    I heard that you have to sign up with a 2year contract with AT&T

    I guess its better to clear all the bugs before putting it out. Not like windows, they just push it out and later find out oops there are bugs. I'm saving up for a Mac.
