Well if there are major flaws with the iPhone i can’t find them. I had one in my hot little hands about 15 mins after they went on sale and once it was fully charged I was online. The set-up process was a breeze and I am loving it already. Typing on the touch screen keyboard is taking a while to get used to (I considered posting this from the iPhone itself but it would have taken too long, I need more practice!) but apart from that I’m a big fan.
The way the display changes from landscape to portrait when you rotate the handset and the finger-activated zooming facility on screen are particularly impressive features and Google Maps just looks sensational on the screen. Configuring the mail server was fairly straightforward too and I’m now debating whether to just bin the BlackBerry once and for all or take it with me to China as ‘back-up’ in case the thing does go wrong. It does seem just too good to be true!
I’m on an 11 hour plane journey tomorrow so plenty of time to sit down, put it in airplane safe mode and explore all the features…it’s already replaced my Ipod after I transferred all my music and videos over so at least that’s ONE less gadget I’ll be cramming into my hand luggage. Oh yes and the photo uploads to facebook are superb too so there’ll be lots of pics of China winging that way. Apple, once again, I love you.Tweet
