iPhone – expensive toy or real business tool?

I have had my iPhone for a little over 60 days now.  On July 11th I was one of the people who stood in line for hours for the privilege of forking over nearly $500 (when all was said and done with taxes, activation fees, pre-pays and accessories) to purchase an iPhone on “opening day”. …
