Re: Oh, do report back on the experience
"[Only one downvote so far for coming out on el Reg as a day 1 iPhone purchaser? Whatever are things coming to....?]"
You may be a day one iPhone purchaser, and you may have openly admitted to being a sucker for the Apple hype - but in spite of all that, you still took a more reasoned and sensible approach to buying the product, rather than quamp* to get the new shiny. I suspect that may be a big factor in the lack of downvotes.
* Quamp. I just made that up as a portmanteau word to mean to queue and camp, which is what the real suckers do. Quamping for the new iToy.
