Sechs Fragen an einen iPhone-Fan:
… I love my iPhone because it’s worlds apart better from any other phone on the market. I can’t pick up another phone and not try to use it “touchscreen” style. Everything else out there right now in the smartphone market still basically “sucks!”
… I curse my iPhone every time it crashes out of an app unexpectedly. So reminds me of Microsoft.
… My list of things I miss on the iPhone is long: cut & paste (coming soon), turn-by-turn navigation (coming soon), apps running in the background (sort of coming soon), longer battery life (good luck!), exchangeable battery (when hell freezes over probably) and I want a damn little light which shows me I have messages (Apple, is this really that hard?).
… My favorite app right now is the email app cause I use it so often. When I’m lost or more likely when tourists ask me where to go (which happens more often than you’d expect), I absolutely adore Google Maps. When I want to bash a restaurant for their bad service, I turn to Qype Radar. Finally, I love Shazam when trying to figure out which song I’m listening to.
… I have my iPhone since 30 days after it came out (the 3G) version but only because T-Mobile screwed up my order and I didn’t have it on day 1! Fail!
… My mobile before the iPhone was the T-Mobile branded (MDA IV) HTC Kaiser. I gave it to my CFO. Don’t tell him it’s a brick in comparison to the iPhone.
