Steve, who works for a law firm, avoided the first generation of the iPhone because it did not have 3G connectivity — it used the slower Edge data standard.
"The iPhone 3G was quite hyped up on the internet," he told ZDNet.co.uk. "I started queuing at 3am." Steve added that he was switching provider from Orange — with whom he had a Nokia N95 — to O2 so he can get the iPhone.
He also said that, while his workplace did use Microsoft Exchange — now supported for the first time by the iPhone — he would not be able to use his iPhone as a work device. "The company phones are BlackBerrys," he said. "It's unlikely they will let us change."
