I Like My iPhone. You Have A Problem With That?
Granted that I actually got the iPhone from my brother (and promising to get him an iPod Nano next month), I can see how an overhyped and pricey device (with a slightly disappointing feature set) might rub people the wrong way.
At the same time though, I don’t seem to understand why rabid detractors love nothing more than to lay it thick on the iPhone without even looking into the merits of the device. Casting the price equation out the window, I find that the iPhone is probably one of best convergence device I’ve ever encountered.
Having said that, the iPhone fills in the gaps that my favourite handheld console, the Nintendo DS, seem to have missed. With the iPhone not only do I get access to hundreds of innovative and cool games from the App Store, I also get to surf the Internet on the road (thanks to a data unlimited plan) , listen to music and on top of that, use it as a phone!
There’ll always be better phones out there, with features and abilities that start to rival even mobile computers and other handphones. One thing however that people (especially fanboys) tend to forget is that a particular phone model, no matter how great or perfect it might seem, may not suite everyone.
For me, the iPhone is pretty much a one-stop device, enabling me to do stuff that would previously require 2 to 3 devices. If that isn’t considered great or even good, I don’t know what is.Powered by Sidelines
