The iPhone keyboard issues seem to be a moot point compared to the activation hassles that early iPhone adopters are facing. A poll over at Engadget suggests that over 38% of the 9,000 respondents to the poll are suffering from activation problems and have an iBrick to show for their cash.
This is crazy. Apple have super-hyped product launch of the year and AT&T are messing things up for them big style. Didn't anyone at Apple or AT&T put some plans in place to deal with problems? Is it really a good idea to leave people hanging until Monday? Why bother launching the iPhone on a Friday evening if AT&T was just going to drop the ball? It would appear that Apple's partnership with AT&T might have been a big mistake. The iPhone might be cool, but AT&T's handling of the launch is nothing short of a joke. Steve Jobs needs to start busting some heads.
