Apple The iPhone is out and about, and everyone waiting in line for hours/days got one (including Woz, and the mayor of Philadelphia who apparently had nothing better to do). Unboxing pictures here, dissecting pictures here, PDF manual, and one of the best-designed iPhone web apps can be found here: the iPhoneAppsManager (requires a Safari/Webkit browser to work). Update: Reviews: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Update 2: It is claimed Apple UK will announce a 3G iPhone on Monday, as well as deals with Vodafone and T-Mobile. Update 3: Lots of screenshots reveal no "weekend/weekday" recurrence in the alarm app.

Hell, I'm in canada, and no sign of the phone in our stores.

Although hopefully when it goes international, we will get a better provider then AT&T, which is pretty much the worst in america.

I remember seeing somewhere that this 1st generation will be on US GSM bands only (1900, 900?), which is why it's not due to be in europe (1800) or canada (was it 1850?) for a while.

no. The box clearly states that it is quad-band GSM.

The only provider in Canada that can accept the iPhone is Rogers, which I've heard lots of horror stories with them.

Actually, Canada needs more mobile competition. The only GSM provider here is Rogers (Rogers brought Fido), so not a lot of choice (Telus and Bell uses CDMA).

Plus, the iPhone is locked with an integrated sim card. Quite unusual for a GSM phone, which can be compared to a CDMA phone. Which means you can't unlock it and use it with another provider by changing the sim card.

If it is in fact true that the iPhone is locked to an integrated sim card (I've read conflicting reports on this) then that is something that they'll have to fix before they start selling to europe. In many countries it is illegal to sell locked phones and in others the phone must be unlockable for a service fee.
