I am one who agrees that the iPhone is a pretty cool unit. In fact, it is almost more than I can stand. The iPhone is compact and very cool and I want one right now (or at least for Christmas)! but I have three problems with it: Its initial purchase price - The phone itself at $400 is somewhat expensive, but I would be over that hurdle in a couple of months, after the bills were paid. The costly monthly two-year contract - This is an ongoing expense that requires some evaluation and planning to fit it into my budget. But I am sure that I could justify it, if not for problem #3. The built in camera - Although this could be cool too, I am sure that I am not the only potential buyer out here who works at a defense industry firm where cameras are absolutely not allowed in the facility. Although it could most likely be hidden in my bag and brought without being discovered. If it were discovered, I would have a strong risk of being fired. Besides, if I had something as cool as the iPhone, I would most certainly want to "show off" a bit to my peers rather than to keep it hidden. It is not worth the risk of being fired. I think it would be helpful to Apple's business and customers if they could offer an iPhone without that built-in camera. I have heard of options for removing the camera, either do-it-yourself or for a fee, but this would risk breaking a costly device and also voiding the warranty. It goes against my principles to pay an extra cost for something less. Please, Apple, offer an iPhone without the camera, and I will buy at least two of them instantly.
