After two years of holding out for an iPhone, I finally decided to take the plunge and get the new iPhone 3Gs. What held me back so long? First was the fact of switching from T-Mobile to AT&T. I’m now paying about $35 extra per month. Second was the lack of storage. 16GB wasn’t near enough to store my music alone, which adds up to a little over 20GB, let alone podcasts and additional apps I would download. Now with the 32GB iPhone 3Gs I had run out of excuses.
So I woke up at 5:20AM on Friday and was in line at the Apple store by 6AM. By 7:50AM I had my iPhone in hand, very good experience overall (except for some AT&T transfer issues). I’m sure having reserved the iPhone ahead of time made things a little smoother.
So far it’s been a handful of days and I am REALLY enjoying my iPhone. A lot of useful apps, typing is a pleasure, and the flexibility and mobility is unparalleled. So far it has (temporarily) replaced my laptop for everything except designing and developing web sites and using graphic design programs such as Photoshop and Illustrator.
One last thing until I can further review the phone: This thing is an amazing gaming system! I loaded the terminator demo and was shocked at the graphics, performance, and controls. This is truly the device of the future and I hope it only gets better. So far it is worth the extra fee per month along with the price of the phone. Highly recommended, and that’s coming from a former blackberry user.
Oh, and this post was completely written and published directly from my iPhone
