It seems that those who ordered very early from Apple will get theirs domestically

    Hopefully all the iPhones are the same, otherwise I'm going to be upset if it's like made in USA or has a matte black or something.

    Yep, the cats out of the bag, those who ordered early from Apple will get a special version built in minot, north dakota, and it will have a flat black finish with white stripes on it to signify build location... :rolleyes:

    I ordered 6/9 and because I did I got one of the special ones which included a coin with General Custers likeness on the Head and the 2010 Iphone likeness on the back....

    It won't be matte black, don't be ridiculous. They are bright orange and the back is a Confederate flag.

    No, they're going to look exactly the same as any other GS except for the slide-out keyboard.

    They actually have a unique dual slide out keyboard design so you can have both landscape and portrait keyboards.

    Word on the street is that they also have the desired front facing camera and iChat app preinstalled.

    You're all going to get Palm Pres. Priis? Pries? Pryeeessiises?

    Apple got a deal on some tremendous overstock, even after Palm warned of possible shortages. :p

    This is actually the reason for the Pre 'shortages.' It had nothing to do with how many Palm manufactured, or Sprint ordered, it was the huge order Apple placed for early fulfillment of 3Gs orders.

    They have been in a warehouse in rural TN where backwater folks have been painting 3Gs logos on the back with whiteout and fingernail polish.

    I thought it was good. I laughed at it myself.

    I heard a good one about the "lines" of people waiting for Pres last week. My friend said, "Is that even consider a line, or just two people having a conversation on a sidewalk?" This was in reference to a pic. :p

    It was a good week to make fun of the mighty Palm and Sprint.
    A friend of mine told me he usually browses the app store when he's bored. (like standing in a line will do) He then made the comment "good thing the lines are so short, 18 apps aint much to look at..."
