I badly want one.
They are ridiculously expensive but it has certain functionality that makes it quite good for me, even compared to a Nokia N95. If I did get another phone, I’d just want an iPod Touch too, which would sit at home collecting dust as when I’m out I wouldn’t want to have to carry an iPod, phone and wallet – I wouldn’t have enough pockets.
This sounds like me trying to justify getting one, but when I read reviews there are generally two types. The ones that provide a genuine comparison say that the iPhone has its plus points and is infinitely cooler than the others available, but maybe check an N95 for more value for money. The other set of reviews seem to be from people who dislike Apple, the type of people who never go to McDonalds for political reasons, who’s review will probably mention the name Steve Jobs with personal disgust and in the same they way will be using Linux based PC cause they don’t like Bill Gates either.
I can’t imagine myself sat in a hotel having travelled for work, listening to or watching something like an N95. I already use iTunes so I’d have to rip all my CDs again so it can play my music. I don’t need GPS, don’t partake in happy slapping let alone high quality photography, only use MMS cause it’s included in my current tariff and would like the web browsing without having to pay extra.
The only thing then left is the tariff. Would I mind paying a bit extra to have something as cool as an iPhone? Probably not.
