"The iPhone is probably a combination of cool technology and hype, with a good marketing campaign to get the gadget buyers attention. If you are patient and wait, there will be other choices at competitive prices."
-- Cary W., Arizona
"The iPhone appears to be the ultimate portable electronic device. Not only is it packed with features; it also has that stylish look that all Apple products exhibit. While the price may seem to be a bit steep, you're paying for more than just a cell phone. The only drawback to this phone is that it will only be offered to AT&T cellular subscribers; a service provider that (at least in MA) has a fairly small market share."
-- Chris N., Massachusetts
"Yes, I live in a retirement community in Florida and everyone is talking about it and wants one!"
-- Pam F.
"The iPhone has raised the bar to a neck stretching level."
-- Joseph P., Connecticut
"Apple will have built a great device, but Cingular’s slow Edge network will render it useless."
-- Aaron W.
"Its not new technology, touch screen has been around for years. I think its just a bunch of hype and I am not buying one."
"I believe that the iPhone is just another unneeded and expensive toy. Blackberry and Treo and to a certain extent Palm provide real tools at reasonable prices. Anyone sitting in line all night to buy something tonight really has little constructive need for an iPhone other than as a plaything. Imagine how much better the economy would be if all of the iPhone customers were productive."
-- Gene B., New Jersey
"I believe it will be unprecedented in its success."
-- Bill C., Texas
