So Apple released their iPhone yesterday at MacWorld.
First of all, you should click on the link and check out what the device can do; it can do some amazing things. It has one button and a huge 3.5″ multi-touch screen in which the software on the phone (full version of OS X apparently) completely replaces the hardware of a standard mobile phone. It’s an iPod, phone, camera and internet navigator all in one. You can listen to your tunes, set your tunes as ringtones, take photos, set your photos as wallpaper, navigate the internet and send and recieve email all on one device.
But it’s a smartphone, why do you want one?
You all might or might not know that I am against owning a smartphone. Why is that? Well, current smartphones are horrible. They’re hard to use and frankly I don’t want to mess with that when most of what I am going to do with a phone is place phone calls. It irritates me that I have to have a camera on my phone because that’s the only way they come.
Why do I want one?
With the iPhone being a smartphone that does all the things I do not want my phone to do, why do I want to own one? Well, the main reason is simple.
The user interface is amazing and I don’t have to use my thumbs, thumbsticks, scroll wheels or any other hard-to-use-when-small means to navigate the software. It’s usable and that’s what’s missing in standard smartphones.
I also want to own one because of the high technology included in the very small and sleek box and it’s built on my favorite operating system, OS X.
Sadly the phone isn’t released until June, which means I have to wait until then to get one, but the good news is that it’s only going to be available to Cingular — my phone service provider. So come June, I will have saved up enough dough to purchase one of these devices the day they’re launched.
That’s really all I wanted to write about today.
Evolution honors you all!
