    Woohoo, got a new phone!!!

    Well I went into AT&T today to ask a couple of questions. All I wanted to know was what bands they use locally. I was looking at a chocolate on ebay and it was tri-band. Unfortunately in my area I needed a quad-band so the chocolate was out.

    I decided to look around for a few minutes. The salesman asked me if I had considered a pda, I told him not really. Then I started checking out the blackberries. They weren't nearly as expensive as I had recalled. He then told me that if I bought a blackberry he could upgrade my account and give me the new customer discount. Sounded pretty cool. Then I looked over and saw the iPhone. I asked him why on earth people would buy that thing since it was basicly just an expensive blackberry. He then asked me if I had played around with one before, to which I said no. Then he handed it to me, the rest as they say is history!



    This thing is just awesome! I really don't know what else to say about it.
    I may be fat but I'm slow enough to make up for it.

    I saw a guy in the mall using his iPhone. He was scrolling through a bunch of pictures using the finger-across-the-screen motion. It looked so cool.

    That thing looks too complicated for the likes of me.

    But a Denise Richards covered in... apples... is much less appealing than a Denise Richards covered in chocolate. I think you made the wrong choice, my friend.

    Same here. A coworker brought it in and gave us a full demonstration. It actually was quite impressive and I thought it lives up to the hype. But at $600, I don't think so. Just not high on my priority list.

    I just bought the cheap $500 one. I'm not all that worried about storing a ton of music or videos on it.

    It does live up to the hype though, all the men want to be me and all of the women want to be with me. This morning I woke up to a line of women at my front door. Of course, they were all in white uniforms but that is another story.

    Now that the iPhone has been out for over a week, some Apple-crazed upstarts have got the jump on releasing games for the must-have device.

    We covered Fun4iPhone's tongue in cheek iWhack last week, but since then a couple more sites have emerged, each hosting a unique and fairly broad selection of browser-based games.

    MacMost has gone the tried-and-tested route with a selection of predictable titles that, while a tad uninspiring, will certainly help to keep boredom at bay for those who have already become desensitised to the iPhone's glitzy interface.

    The games are Solitaire, Minesweeper, Match Three, Collapsing Blocks, Sudoku and the ominous sounding iPhone Assassin, which is listed with no details besides that you can 'Play against others in the real world'.

    Not bad, but not the sort of line up that will build the iPhone's credentials as a closet portable gaming wizard. The brand new outfit iGiki, however, seems to be making more of an effort to provide original iPhone content.

    How about Sink or Swim, a casual effort that challenges you to save flailing overboard people from shark attacks? Meanwhile Outer Wars is a 3D shooter featuring ships and backdrops that should have a certain Mr Lucas wondering where his licence went if it gains any sort of popularity. There is also the gloriously macabre EuroDarts, which takes the pub classic and adds a human target complete with spumes of claret after successful throws.

    There are hordes of other more casual titles and fun there such as the iGiki Music Maker, although unfortunately they are not all free. Giki's games are divided into GikiSingles, GikiPacks, and GikiMinis. The GikiPack costs $2 for three months worth of access and the GikiSingles are $1 for three months. The GikiMinis, howeve,r are free.

    Although we haven't had the chance to play any of the games being that Pocket Gamer is based in the UK and we're sadly sans-iPhone, it seems clear there is some momentum out there for playing games on Apple's wonder device. Once the iPhone is granted Flash capabilities, there is no telling how far it could drive a browser-based gaming scene tailored specifically for it.

    Hopefully by the time the iPhone is released in Europe there will be plenty of games available for review.
