First iPhone in the Wild (West Texas A&M) [Updated]

TUAW reports that (perhaps) the first "civilian" iPhone may have been given to West Texas A&M's president, Dr J. Patrick O'Brien.

According to the first hand report, AT&T's CEO Stan Sigman presented the iPhone to Dr O'Brien at a commencement speech at the university:

The big news is that he presented the president of WTAMU, Dr. O'Brien, with what he claimed was "the first iPhone in Texas." Dr. O'Brien even held the iPhone up for the crowd to see at the ceremonies.

A spotty video was posted of the event.

Update: According to a couple of first hand reports, the iPhone was not actually gifted, but simply shown.
