Ok, so Ive been thinking the 3G thing over since wwdc and decided today at lunch I wanted to get the 16gb iphone .version 1. I hate the full plastic, GPS is something Ive never used or plan to use and 3G well, it would be nice to have 3G, but Ive been using EDGE for over a year now and its fine. All things considered, the new iphone offers relatively nothing of great value to me in my own eyes. I took off at lunch and went to 3 ATT stores in hopes of getting the version 1 iphone (yes, I realized it was probably not gonna happen, but worth a shot). As I suspected, all 3 ATT stores in Dallas were out. Some of you may say to get one from a previous owner but thats a no-go in my book. I want brand new or not at all. Guess Ill settle for the cost-cutting 3G on July 11th. However, heres what made me post to begin with (as you all may be wondering, whats his point?): All 3 ATT stores were the same. None of them had any promotional material up or around the store. None of them had a 3G display model. None of them knew what time it would go on sale at their location. In fact, all 3 stores said relatively the same thing in that they wouldnt get DISPLAY models until either the day before or day of the July 11th launch. What?? Why?? This seems sorta suspect to me. Why wouldnt Apple provide at least a display model to stores planning to sell their product when they have a whole month to promote? Are they hiding something? Are they trying to keep the cheap feel of the phone out of peoples hands to avoid bad word of mouth? There has to be a reason. These are 3 LARGE ATT stores in the heart of Dallas, TX. All 3 with no clue about cost, plans, promotional material or demo units. Am I the only one who views this as suspect?
