Most people who really wanted one will have one anyway
I've got two, one for me, one for the missus, got them 2 months ago, nicely working on t-mobile and vodaphone....and cheaper than the UK.
Nice to see though that Apple is selling them without contracts - I understand you can walk away from the Apple store without having to sign up to the 18 month O2 shite.
Now all those guys need to do is to wait for the inevitable hack for 1.1.2 and they are off....jailbreak came out for 1.1.2 a day or so ago!
import from the US
I had a play with one my mate unlocked a week or so ago, loved it - when I saw what a shitty plan the UK one will be on i ordered a couple via family in the US - it's cost me $900 all in for two - one for me, one for the wife. My mate will unlock it for me job done, she's on a £11.99 tariff with 400 free texts a month - i'll just switch updating off so we won't get it bricked - who ever heard of updating a phone anyway?
Job done, nice phone, great mp3 player and a really nice web surfer for just over £200 each.
Very well put, companies should focus on designing secure systems not systems with security. There should be provision for making security decisions based upon business value that is unique to the organisation in the same way that web 2.0 ajax technology delivers a web experience that is unique to the user.
The threats we face are no less than before but as sais malware these days is much more 'run silent run deep' than ever before - there will be no more major worms to make the press but the bad guys will make increasinngly more money, this is a paradox that compounds the problem of getting funding for security ... less perceived threat but more actual threat....so you build secure systems with system funding rather than go for unique budget for security. A good example of this is the drive for PCI compliance - the card payment guys are forcing traders to build secure systems with no sensitive information in the clear so it just gets done that way.
There is a company who is at the forefront of helping organisations understand how to deal with security www.securitymob.com (disclaimer i'm not an employee)
