The iPhone is out.
No, not that stupid Cisco thingy. I’m talking about “the” iPhone.
Yeah, baby – the one from Apple!
But why am I feeling like this about the iPhone? I’m not an Apple fanboi. I’ve never owned an Apple product – nope, not even the iPod. Well, 6 months ago, I did download iTunes, but I barely use it. I did drool about the Mac Mini a while ago, but heck, I haven’t even touched a Mac yet.
I do stare longingly at the white headphone cords coming out of all those subway commuters’ clothes, but my Treo 650 solved my music and podcast needs, while also fulfilling my phone and address-book needs. What more could I ask for, right? (keep reading…)
So just go away, Apple! I love my Treo. Wouldn’t trade it for anything in the world! Nothing would make me change my mind. I’ve never been more happy with my phone, so you can’t make me switch. Nope. Not a chance. Can’t do. I have sworn my loyalty to Tr…
What? You said it has a wide screen? I can watch movies?
And a 80G hard drive?
And it really is only a half-inch thick?
And a 2 mega pixel camera?
It won’t hang like my Treo does when downloading email?
And it is really as beautiful as it looks in the picture?
Ok, now give me my damn iPhone, will you?
Gotta pay close to $600? No problem.
I’ll skip lunch for a month.
Gotta switch from Verizon to Cingular? No problem.
Screw my friends and contacts. I’ll switch on them, even if it means getting a new number.
Can’t import my Palm address-book? No problem.
I’ll enter all 1700 of them manually. Better yet, I’ll make my 8 year-old do it (or else, no McDonald’s chicken sandwich on the weekends until she’s 18!)
Will get smudged with finger and face grease? No problem.
I will buy an expensive piece of anti-static, glass-wiping cloth, and wash my hands and face 17 times a day.
Hey Cingular, where do I sign the contract?
