[I am] eagerly awaiting the iPhone.

06 Jun 2007  |  Tags: ,

I can’t wait to pickup an Apple iPhone later this month.
The main reason for jumping-ahead and being an early adopter is that I’ll still have my Sony Ericsson W810i (3.9 x 1.8 x 0.8 inches) as a backup. However, the iPhone is 4.5 x 2.4 x 0.46 inches… so although it’s slightly thinner than my current phone, it does stick out a half an inch more on each corner.

So, I’m going to have to reduce my wallet’s contents to make room for the “brick”. I’m not a fan of the unsightly pocket bulge, and others have the same concerns with this release. I’m also not a huge fan of the current design… it seems very un-Apple to release a grungy black, chic, aluminum rounded device. The phone should have definitely been a plain glossy-black/white-plastic single-color.

Regardless, I’m really excited to integrate on-the-go with my favorite web apps and e-mail. At one point I tried to adopt a Blackberry, but if Apple’s gotten it together… it could be a winner in the business and personal market alike.

Oh, and hopefully it works with Mobile17… which just crossed the 6-million mark last night. ;)
