Me and my iPhone
At least it’s mine for a few days 🙂 My brother bought it in the US and has allowed me to play with it while I am here in Hong Kong. Of course he is more than a little nervous that he won’t get it back (heh heh). Not that I blame him – the danger is very real!
When he first let me borrow it, I just sat for a few minutes and looked at it and caressed it tenderly absolutely entranced. It is such a beautiful phone – like anything Apple, the elegance and design far surpasses any phone imaginable. It’s sleek, sexy and absolutely gorgeous!
When i finally started checking out the features, it felt like magic. Oh so very responsive to the touch. Safari loads smoothly and quickly – the landscape option is simply amazing – it is so seamless you don’t even see it happening.
Sliding across the screen to scroll is so easy. Zooming in or out when looking at photographs or Google maps is so totally cool. I sent an SMS and and email message with my new iPhone – yes MINE! (hey I can dream, can’t i?) and it was just so simple. Movies load and run like magic in YouTube on the iPhone … and the iPod option works fabulously. I watched Larry King Live and listened to the Beatles. The sound and video quality were superb.
The calendar, address book and notepad are simplicity personified and a total pleasure to use. Using the camera made me ooh and aah with delight. I am in love with the new iPhone and I haven’t even been able to try out the phone option yet – the service is not available in Hong Kong and my brother hasn’t been able to hack it although a friend of his told him that it can and has been done locally.
And oh oh oh I almost forgot, the trash can is absolutely out of this world – you delete anything and the cover of the can opens, swallows the doc and closes again. Apple’s attention to detail is what makes all of us totally crazy about the innovative products they come out with.
Another thing about anything Apple – there is no learning curve. Just pick it up and start using it! Wow! And double Wow!
I will spend the next 10 days using this dreamy gadget and then i guess i will have to bid it adieu … sigh… sob…
