I’ve been grumbling a bit the past few days because of the new iPhone. Not because I’m not getting one – believe me, I’d love one, but I’m perfectly happy with my LG env2 with free internet (albeit, WAP browser internet).

But I understand that a lot of people have iPhone on the mind, and that this will all die down in a few days.
