2010 is clearly the year of upgrades.
I’m not a big cell phone user – I only use my cell phone for voice calls, no texts or emails and certainly no apps. I’ve had a trusty Razor (Motorola RAZR V3) for about four years now, and have been very happy with it. I had no plans on “upgrading” anytime soon.
For Christmas two of my best friends purchased an iPhone gift card for me and so I decided maybe now was the time to upgrade. My wife and kids were already on iPhones and Blackberrys, so how bad could it be?
I received my iPhone (3Gs 16GB) a few days ago and must admit if I had some spare time it does look pretty slick. The thought of having my music, photos, contacts, and easy access to emails and the web is quite interesting, not to mention all the cool apps that are available.
So far I have just synced up my iTunes and Outlook. I have not really customized it – my son offers every day to help me. I’m quite sure when I finally give into the potential I’ll be as wild about it as everyone else.
I’m not 100% sure having access to all the things that remind me of work all the time is a good thing, but we will see. You have to admit we’ve come a long way from my little Moto.
