Perhaps the more important question is how many iPhones could Engadget possibly need? Well, technically we only bought the publication itself two, but that didn't stop a throng of curious Engadget writers from dropping three months' pay to play with Apple's new hotness.

How many iPhones did Engadget snag?

a. 10
b. 12
c. 14
d. 16
e. 18

Note: the 8 pictured above only represent Engadget West's stock.

The answer:

b. 12 - Engadget took home 12 friggin iPhones yesterday. Don't worry -- believe it or not some are actually going back to the store. You know what they say, you can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it love an iPhone.
