Being from the Bay Area, I am used to seeing lots of iPhones in small groups. But I haven't had the same experience outside Northern California. Until now. At the meetup, there were at least six iPhones in evidence, including one iPhone 3G S, whose owner said he would recommend upgrading to the device to any iPhone owner.
