This week I made the leap away from Apple for my phone, thus ending my romance with Apple of the last year. This time last year I bought my first piece of Apple hardware – the iPhone 3G. At the time I had the choice to either wait, for potentially weeks, for the new iPhone 3GS, or take a 3G home with me on that day. Being me (an impatient, “want it now” kinda girl — OK a little bit Veruca Salt-ish!), I went for the 3G.
My experience was top-notch from day one, I loved the phone and thought that Apple had solved every issue I had ever had with previous “smart” or “PDA-style” phones. It ran smoothly, emails displayed beautifully on it (a vast improvement on my Nokia E71, which was text-only email and so fairly useless for me on the go), and best of all there was a plentitude on apps, all at very reasonable prices, if not for free.
