While the big news today is the announcement of the Symbian acquisition by Nokia, what has caught my attention is an indirectly related, little conversation in Friendfeed.

Asks Steve Rubel :

Is anyone planning to wait on line July 11 for the new iPhone? Just curious.

Yes, I am curious too. More because I will be arriving in New York this very day and I thought of having a closer look in the first place.

But the answers are kinda disappointing.

  • Lots think it is better to wait.
  • Others say plainly no.
  • Competitive options are considered.

iPhone has all the hype but no more steam?
