If you'd prefer your pictures to be of the moving variety, make sure you check out Australia's first iPhone unboxing video.

Easy does it
What you can't see is us salivating uncontrollably in the background.

It's definitely been a long time coming
This is how Indiana Jones must have felt when the Ark of the Covenant was opened — with less deadly poltergeists, of course.

Sealed for freshness
The iPhone comes wrapped in a protective plastic coating which covers the back and front of the phone, saving you from smearing it with unsightly fingerprints the minute you take it out of the box.

Elegant simplicity
Part of the appeal of Apple products must be the elegant and simple packaging. Everything is so neatly and tightly packed into this tiny container.

A lust for power
Even the recharging accessories are cute as a button and unlike the bulky chargers we often find in phone boxes.

Apple's 16GB iPhone 3G
And there we have it: the phone we've all been waiting for. Now we just need some friends to show it off to.
