iPhone freezes, black and white stripes flashing on and off

OK, took delivery of my 1.02 version iPhone today.

Had a play with everything, put some music and video's on and then had a fiddle with the application installer. Whilst doing this I installed about 7-8 programs and games back to back.

When I came out of the installer my desktop (or whatever its called) was full of icons and then suddenly the phone went on a major spazzy lag fit, everything was pretty much locked up so I did a reset (press both buttons for 30 seconds) and the Apple logo comes up followed by black and white stripes flashing on and off - then the desktop will load but its still really laggy. The spining icon appears every 2-3 seconds and theres nothing that can be done other than doing another reset.

I think it's something to do with the applications I installed but I cant get back into the installer to remove them because of the lag, I've tried plugging it into iTunes as well but iTunes will not pick it up, neither will my computer register it is there (it did before this).

I'm not really sure what to do now?

Any help with this would be greatly appreciated
