I did not get an iPhone mostly because as cool and neat as it is (and it really is) I need to have some sense of practicality in running my business.
I remain a die-hard BlackBerry 8800 user because it just works. (Also, the current iPhone won’t hold the 5,000 song playlist I have on my iPod.
The only thing I don’t get in Shelly’s review of the iPhone is the poor coverage issue in New York, where he lives. I travel to NYC and never have coverage or call quality issues. Other wise, most of his other comments are things I have heard from other friends and associates who opted in for the iPhone.
Don’t get me wrong. I am a huge Apple fan. Our home and office is loaded with Apple products and I think it’s just a matter of one or two more generations of iPhones, but real 3G that could sway me to move from the BlackBerry.
