Just like those stupid shoes, kids kill for, and people collect.
I have actually been thinking of buying used iPhone on eBay for $5 or $10 just to use for WiFi, as a camera and some data, maybe even a book. It is certainly small enough to be tucked into a bag or shirt pocket somewhere and not cause a size or weight problem.
Have you thought of a used Apple Touch, which is essentially an iPhone without the phone? They may be slightly cheaper?
