iLove it

A few days ago, I wondered which new phone I should choose. In case you were waiting anxiously to find out what I chose, I’ll let you know. I’m sure it will surprise no one that I went with the iPhone after all.

So far I love it. Because I have an iPod Touch, I already know how to use a lot of the features of the iPhone, and it doesn’t feel unfamiliar. The phone is easy to use, and my husband generously re-entered all my saved contact information into it for me.

And oh, do I love having easy and ready access to the Internet and email or what? Despite being hugely pregnant, I somehow thought it would be a good idea to accept a freelance assignment that’s due next week. While I was out running errands this morning, I was able to stay in contact with the assigning editor and I even shot out a few emails to potential sources. So convenient. I love that.

Now I just need to figure out what else this little gem can do. I need to put more apps on it. I need to find out if it uses up minutes if I call my mom on her AT&T cell phone. I need to put more music on it. But I have to say I think I’m really going to be glad I did this.

Addendum: my husband is continuing to enjoy his Droid. He says he wishes that he could get All Scripts (it’s a doctor thing) on it, which he could get for an iPhone, but other than that, he’s very pleased, too. He may still make the switch to an iPhone from a Blackberry for personal use later this year, though.
