I’ve been waiting for months and months to get my hands on one of the iPhone 3Gs… I just couldn’t justify the monthly cost to myself….until now. With the advent of the app store and all the articles I’ve been reading about the great things people are developing, I finally broke down and got one. And I’m in love.
Here’s the thing. For those of us who want to stay super connected, its the only tool to have. But what I also like is that you’re in control of that connectivity via the amount and setup which apps you choose to run.
Here’s the point I really wanted to make though… I truly believe that this platform (and future platforms like Android ((once it gets refined)) ) are really what’s going to make social networking and location based web services the next big thing. I may even be a bit late on this one, but even with all the apps currently integrating web and GPS on a mobile platform, I think we’re just scratching the surface.
I also have found that web apps like Twitter and Google Reader, and Earth, almost perform better on the mobile platform than the desktop. Twitter for sure as its so conducive to blasting out tweets as soon as they enter into your mind. (I’ve also installed the WordPress app but blogging just doesn’t work as well on that little keyboard).
Anyway, I’m a super happy camper right now and will certainly be blogging about how this platform gets integrated into my day to day, and rocks my world.
