Getting our hands on this iPhone was no mean feat. There was the biting cold, the cranky crowd and let's not forget the free pizza, coffee and massages — it was torture.
But instead of tearing open our new iPhone as soon as we left the Optus store, we've patiently brought it back to our labs so that you, our beloved reader, can share the grand unboxing with us. If you thought the Iron Man movie was gadget porn, just wait till you see this!
