So who has tried out the iPhone?

My brother-in-law out in the Bay Area was one of the 700,000 people who got one this weekend and he loves it, but he's a total Apple freak, so it isn't really an objective review. But he was able to set up his corporate e-mail over the weekend, which means that he didn't need tech support.

NYT tech columnist and CJD fav David Pogue gave it a pretty good review last week.

Pogue's general consensus is that BlackBerry doesn't need to worry. That being said... I'm curious if this very handsome device will catch on in government -- aside from those of us who have to at least try them out.

Just my two-cents, but... it seems that it certainly will move mobile Web browsing ahead -- a direction things seem to be going anyway.

So... anybody get one yet? (If so, where?)

Meanwhile, the Colbert Report reviews the iPhone he never got.
