out of touch...?

it wasamusing to see several US folks at SIGCOMM in Kyoto with very large, expensive
mp3 playeres they'd bought from Apple, which allegedly are some kind of phone - only don't work outside of US GSM coverage:-) My guess is that the iPhone will largely only sell in the US until they a) unlock it b) allow 3rd party apps to run on it and, last but not least c) put a 3G chip/radio in it so it actually works in the 21st century like other products one can already buy in EU and APAC for less (with more battery life), but hey...it makes a change
