Why Should You (Or Should You Not) Get An iPhone?

The reasons why you should choose the iPhone are:

- Ability to check email from anywhere

- Ability to find my way with either the Maps or the Say Where app (great free app - you just speak where you want to go and it maps it out for you so you don't need to type when you're driving)

- Ability to easily find what I'm looking for - even if it's a last minute thing - iWant app is an awesome free app that allows you to find anything from gas stations to cinemas - comes in handy when you're in a new area

- Ability to use the iPod - don't need to carry around a separate piece of technology to listen to music

Basically it comes down to the fact that you now have one piece of equipment that is your Phone, Calendar, Music Player, Maps, Camera (when you actually need one). Being that your iPhone is used for everything …. make sure you keep backups - sure don't want to lose anything.

As far as reasons not to choose the iPhone, it just works until ...

... the internal battery dies outside of warranty

... you want to enter more than one APN (commercial data plan, corporate mail server)

... you want to use a music service other than the inbuilt iPod while ... well, doing anything else other than using that single service

... you want to do background downloading

... you want to store more than 32GB of stuff on memory cards and swap them

The iPhone is great for consumer grade stuff. Android has been built to do a little more heavy lifting. Plus, the Nexus One is more powerful and cheaper.

If you’re in the market for any of the iPhone, Android, or Nexus One …. You can get more details and order online (at a discount) via Mobile Phone Online Store
