Today's the day.
It's like Christmas morning, except there are no presents under the tree.
Finally ... The iPhone is here. But I won't have one, at least not for the first edition.
But I'm sure the half-dozen people sitting outside the AT&T store on Camp Bowie this morning will have one shortly after the 6 p.m. launch.
My first sight of the iPhone was in January at MacWorld in San Francisco. The phone was in a display case (see photo at left). We don't even know if that was a real phone, but everyone stopped and stared like they were looking at President Ford lying in state a few weeks earlier.
I'm tired of reading about so-called analysts' predictions of whether the iPhone will or won't work.
Apple Inc. has a great track record in recent times. When I was at MacWorld Expo a few years ago and Apple introduced the iPod, many questioned whether it will work.
Just ask Microsoft and its Zune (MP3 player) whether the iPod is working.
The iPhone will be just fine. Expensive, yes. But when you think about it, the gadget is a cellphone, iPod, e-mail server, camera and browser, all in one. You're getting a lot for the money.
The real opinion of whether it will or won't work will come from users ... not a suit on Wall Street.
If you have an iPhone and want to offer up an opinion, send me a note. And if you have one, check out my column on iPhone accessories.
