My new iPhone is actively awesome.
I'm almost quite upset that I've been resisting getting one before now. They are almost stupidly easy to use. It's annoying and addictive and also a fantastic phone. The apps system works very well indeed, allowing endless customisation within the sandbox of the optimum iphone environment.
I think the massive amount of freeware and cheap software means endless fun. Additionally they are always improving - now my research papers are on my iphone with Papers and I can fiddle with things in DocumentsToGo the mail program and calendar are a godsend.
Until I broke my WinMo 6.1 phone I didn't realise how much I used it. Now I have an iPhone I can't believe I battled away with that absolute crud that is the WinMo 6.1 interface, I am such a muppet.
I use it for life and Tube Deluxe and London Buses make the maze of London's awful travel network a breeze!
The iPod is bloody good too.
Seriously. Ignore that haters and get yourself one. You will not regret it I promise!
