Unless you’ve been under a rock this week, you’ve heard all the hype about the new iphone being released in a few weeks. The iphone 4 becomes available on June 24th. I am not writing a tech review here, but I wanted to comment on this a little bit, since I. WANT. ONE. Yes, I have been drinking the Apple-flavored Kool-Aid again.
As a self-admitted Apple worshiper, I must say that I am loving what I am seeing right now. I currently have the iphone 3G, which has served me quite well, but the 4 is looking like it addresses all of the things that I had on my improvement wish list: higher quality camera resolution and included flash, longer battery life, improved display, video recording, a slimmer profile, and improved multi-tasking. Of course, Apple went further than I could have hoped. (Check out this to see all the details.)
Now, I am not going to rush out and buy one on the 24th, as tempting as that may be. I want to see if there are any bugs/issues with it before I plunk down my $199 for one. I also want to check into how AT&T is going to handle its data-usage fees. We currently have a plan with unlimited data, but the folks at old Ma Bell are trying to change that. So far, I believe that we are grandfathered into our current plan, but I don’t want to be messin’ around with things before I am guaranteed that we don’t lose that when we get a new phone.
So. . . here’s to you, Apple. Bottom’s up!
