That`s the thing with iXXXX, it`s almost a fashion to get. Going by the european release-newsy thing, Christmas will see massive sales.

Apple is pure genius, and the phone is worth every cent

I'm for big companies making big money, it's called good marketing. Apple has the best marketing group in the world as far as I'm concerned. They've carefully tuned their selling price as to not scare people away yet maximize profits, what any SMART business would do. Cheers!

Apparently they arent all that great and the price is pushing people away. Everybody ive talked to (even in the mall, and those people have loads of money here) said they wouldnt buy one becasue the price is to high for a phone. (And these are people walking around with Treos and PDAs and whatnot)
