My wife has been reluctant to get a smartphone - I think she can sometimes be intimidated by technology. Over the past year I 've been guiding her toward an iPhone - it's consumer friendly, even for those who aren't technically inclined. Still, she wasn't ready to get one.
Today, out of the blue, she called and said, "Honey, I want to go to the Apple Store and buy an iPhone today." I have no idea why she had the sudden change of heart, but I informed that there would be a new one released soon and that we should pre-order it.
I jumped on the AT&T Wireless site and ordered an iPhone 3G S for the lovely price of $199. I opted to pick it up at a local store so they'll tell me when and where to go. When it arrives I'll swap the SIM cards and voila! - new iPhone 3G S for me! ;)
Apple better damn well make good on their claim of "better battery life."
