I just had a funny conversation on IM with a friend that went like this:
D: Hey, I ask you ah, the iPhone is it worth buying?
M: Of course, old technology, but looks beautiful.
D: Yay, I’m ordering one, and choosing the engraving on the back.
M: Order from where?
D: Apple site lah!
M: Got meh?
D: Got! Apple.com.sg
M: But I thought next year then got?
D: No! Order now, get September 28! Should I engrave my full name or just first name?
M: Wait, I go order also!
D: Yah! Fasterer!
M: Where got?
D: Got! Apple.com.sg!
M: That’s the iPod Touch.
M: It’s an iPhone without the phone.
D: Basket! My friend bluff me!
M: Hahahahahaha! It’s ok, I won’t tell anyone.
D: Wah lao! Nearly bought it!
M: And I nearly got bluffed by you also.
M: Uh huh!
D: OK, I’m going to drown my sorrows in Diet Coke.
I think there’d be people willing to forgo the phone part of the iPhone and shell out $498-698 for this little wi-fi enabled beaut. Hell I wouldn’t want to be making or taking calls if I had this to play with.
