They’re the guinea pigs willing to pay top dollar for cutting-edge gizmos, whether the gadgets are half-baked, potentially doomed or harbingers of a revolution. The customers who bought Apple Inc.’s new iPhone know the pain and the pleasure. They’re early adopters.

What other users say about this:
streak: The iPhone isn’t “half baked”. It has a great web browser, html e-mail, full-function video iPod, and a super touch display, and the monthly service fees are so much lower than for my previous smart phones that the iPhone itself is effectively free. With the recent price drop, the iPhone is now effectively free for switchers from other service providers, too, by compensating for the early termination fee.
