I joined the bandwagon this weekend and bought an iPhone. So far I’ve been very impressed with it.
One of the biggest questions that I had was if the on-screen keyboard would be easy to use. So far the answer is yes. The software correction is what makes it especially useful. I can just type and the software automatically fixes most of the mistakes I make.
I took the train into work today and had another wow moment. I was able to clear out my email inbox while traveling to work.
The last feature I really like is the GPS and Google Maps combo. We drove to a baseball game on Sunday and used the iPhone to guide us. It worked well. one downside
One of the downsides to the iPhone is it’s battery. On Monday I charged it overnight and turned it on the next morning. Unfortunatly it only lasted until about 5pm. This isn’t ideal but as long as I remember to bring the charger with me to work it shouldn’t be a big deal.
So there it is. Apparently the iPhone is as great as everyone says it is.
