For me, the iPhone was love at first multi-touch. When I bought one exactly two years ago this week, I thought that I would NEVER want to try another device. EVER. Since then I’ve had an iPhone “Classic”, a 3G and now a 3GS. The iPhone 3GS is amazing. It is fast, it has huge storage and… it’s an iPhone!
BUT… Apple’s shenanigans lately got me thinking. I’ve started wondering about the longevity of the platform a bit and, more importantly, as someone who uses a tremendous number of Google products including Gmail and Google Voice, I’ve started wondering if these services will continue to be crippled on the iPhone.
So… I started looking around. The result… except for a few iPhone app reviews I have pending, my iPhone will be in a drawer for the time being. In its place…
My impressions so far? I like it… a lot. I like the remarkable integration of Google’s services and I like how “communication-centric” it is. I’ll be using it for a bit and then be back with more on this amazing device.
