Available when?

The bad but not so bad...

iPhone will be sold in the US through Apple’s retail and online stores, and through Cingular’s retail and online stores. Several iPhone accessories will also be available in June, including Apple’s new remarkably compact Bluetooth headset.– Jason Chen

Yes, the iPhone is a Cingular exclusive and locks out more than 100 million wireless users who prefer Verizon's network, Sprint's prices, or T-Mobile's customer service.
Case in point: One Mac-friendly PC Magazine editor I know said, "Damn Verizon to hell!" when I mentioned the iPhone to him. Translation: He wants the iPhone. He needs the iPhone. But he isn't willing to give up Verizon's superior coverage in New York City for it, and I don't think many other people will, either. -pcworld
