I should have introduced myself earlier, but better late than never
I'm an user from Brazil and I started using Apple products back in the 3GS era when I got one near for free.
Before getting this first IPhone I shared a quite common view that Apple's products were too expensive but it completely changed my mind.
Now me and my wife own a MacBook Air, a MacBook Pro, two iPad 2 and 2 iPhones 4 and do not look back.
I can only hope Apple will improve the price of the new IPhone 4S as it was released in Brazil for US$ 1.700,00 for the 64gb model. I could buy another MacBook for that price.
