The OP has stated he has an iphone. Need I say more
I have to say, the iPhone user seems to have his/her own place in society. I can't look at somebody with an iPhone now and take them serious.:)
Can you imagine what it is like to be an iPhone user and drive an Audi??
The first iPhone I saw being used was by a friend who told me he thought the phone was great and that he had this fabulous "ap" that simulated a pint of beer; and that when you tipped the phone to one side the glass and contents tipped too.
He then proceeded to demonstrate it to me.
I almost burst with laughter at the relationship between the iPhone and the male menopause.
Apparently the iPhone has a much higher churn rate than other handsets. No idea why.
I think the world has forgotten that ultimately we are talking about phones. It makes we chuckle when I hear people getting "bored" with their phone.
I know that "apps" and gadgets are big business, but what I would do to have a modern phone with the sound quality of of the Ericsson T28 (not Sony Ericsson), the reliability of a Nokia 6310i and feel of my old titanium 8910(fantastic build quality).
If anybody can show me something like this "old", very late 90's early 2000 technology, in a modern handset I might be interested.
I think we have lost our way with phones, in favour of gadgets. It is not too dissimilar to the megapixel race that we had forced upon us with digital cameras, not so long ago. Thankfully manufacturers have seen the light and are producing better quality, cleaner sensors, without cramming in the dots.
