Yeah... I wonder how many of those were purchased just for that purpose.

Every new toy gets this treatment. The touch screen shot is even better.

Yeah I know - I see them every time a new Apple product comes out.


One thing that is really annoying is that you can't do anything with it until it's activated. Of course, this is my experience with all SIM-based cell phones. Which makes me wonder... I need to find the picture of the screen saying it needs to be activated to see if it's possible to dial 911 from it.

--edit-- n/m FCC wouldn't have approved it if it didn't

No... I rarely use my phone for anything at all. Even if it were only $200 and it didn't require a data plan I'd be tempted but in reality would be too much for something I don't use. I wonder how many of those who got one don't realize how expensive it really is with a minimum $60/month cost.
