My iPhone Has Arrived
While working from home today, The VAR Guy noticed a package at his front door. It was a generic brown shipping box, about the size of a brick. Hmmm. Had The VAR Guy’s new iPhone arrived a little early? Sort of.
The VAR Guy eagerly opened the generic box. Yes, indeed. The packaging inside said “iPhone.” Only, this wasn’t the $500 device Apple plans to ship in June. Instead, it was Cisco’s Wireless-G phone for Skype… And the box did, in fact, have “iPhone” written on it. Cisco owned the name before Apple moved in with its own device.
Full disclosure: Cisco during a conversation with The VAR Guy earlier this month agreed to send The VAR Guy the Linksys device. He intends to test it for a few months at home.
The device is charging right now and should be connected to The VAR Guy’s home network sometime tonight. Can you guess The VAR Guy’s Skype name?
