It was about 18 months ago that I raved about how exciting the technology behind the iPhone was. Apple is a first choice system I'd choose every time, especially when you consider the graphics (it helps when you are doing design work for starters).
I was going to buy it today but went to an independent dealer (Carphone Warehouse) to check the best deal on the best phone for what I wanted.
It seems the iPhone is NOT what I wanted.
I have a 30gb 3rd gen iPod as it is (it works like a business portfolio as it holds most of my treasured client images for instant viewing for my future clients). So the music really isn't the key issue on that score.
Emails are my key issue.
And the fact I get 700 mins cross network in the plan plus unlimited land line calls and unlimited access to the net on the move.
So I bought the baddest of bad boy blackberry's on the advice of some poor sod who had to cater for my every whim. I mean, you just need value for money, don't you and I can't make a decision like that in 30 seconds. I was there for almost an hour and half and not only came away with this monster but I could trade in my naff old phone for this - for FREE! And I'm not kidding, its a fabulous little limited edition phone..... the pink flowers for starters!
Ellie is so excited to be getting this brand new phone (she currently plays with one of my old ones just for the games but i think she is old enough to warrant a mobile for those little emergencies or perhaps send me sweet texts with her undying love for her lubbly momma!).
The only thing I hate about new phones these days is that you have to tie yourself into an 18 month contract by which time technology will have changed again but next time I might get a phone that transports cream cakes directly to my mouth instead of myself lumping over tot he shops to physically buy one.
Mmmmm, now there lies a wonderful invention.
