[PC World/Various] First Iphone 3G reviews appear

Is the iPhone 3G worth waiting in line for? Early reviewers of Apple's new smartphone are mostly positive, but share some common gripes about battery life and two aspects of dealing with AT&T: service plan costs and skimpy 3G coverage areas.
Interesting to see some opinions appear about this, I was thinking of purchasing one as the reduction in price attracted me.

These may be useful to you.

I would like one since its only $200 bucks but I don't think I can get my parents to pay for one, and I don't have the money right now. An LG Shine will probably be just as good though for what I use it.

And why do they say skimpy 3G coverage? Everywhere I drive on a normal day has 3G for me, atleast according to the map. You just can't be in some tiny town, since its a newer tech.
