Since I am a technology guru, it is only natural that I should chime in on the new iPhone. As I perused the online New York Tmes, I came across this review of the invention. As I read through the review, I began to think that perhaps I need one of these little devices — after all, I am very stylish. Sujal has been whining about getting one for awhile now, and I was thinking, maybe it is me who should have the iPhone. It has all of these lovely features of web browsing, expanding the viewing window, touch screen, intelli-typing, iPod, video iPod, a camera, organization programs, not to mention it’s a cell phone. Color me practical, but that is exaclty where the iPhone got into trouble with me:
Making a call, though, can take as many as six steps: wake the phone, unlock its buttons, summon the Home screen, open the Phone program, view the Recent Calls or speed-dial list, and select a name. Call quality is only average, and depends on the strength of your AT&T signal.
Once I got to the second page of the review, the review took a turn for the worse. AT&T apparently has pretty crappy coverage, and if ultimately the iPhone would be my phone, that’s just not all that practical. So I will wait to get one until they perefect some of these issues. Rather, I will have to wait to let Sujal get the phone. 😉
