Just thinking out loud (ok, maybe I'm ranting a bit): I want to get my wife an iPhone for Christmas. She really needs it. She has a basic phone now that she always forgets to charge, a camera that she takes with her to so many places for simple pics and video, and now she wants an iPod so she can have her music from iTunes in the car. That equals an iPhone (and might actually allow me to call her when needed, because she'll keep the phone charged for the music and pictures). BUT I HATE AT&T. I was thinking about "waiting" for the Vz iPhone announcement, but then again, weren't the Beatles always right around the corner on iTunes? How long did that take to actually happen -- like five years or something? I suppose another upside -- if Vz does do the iPhone, maybe that will un-congest the AT&T pipes (though it still won't help with their coverage issues).
