iWant an iPhone

6:54 PM By Barry Smyth No comments

Yes I admit it I'm a gadget lover (among other things), and like many I can't wait to get my grubby little paws on the new Apple iPhone. An mp3 player that doubles as a phone instead of the other way round, how novel is that!.

I use to be a huge Nokia fan, but they so totally lost the plot. Instead of making continuous improvements in their models and creating a phone that everyone would want to have, new phone upon new phone was released, many of them flawed in my opinion, in an attempt to saturate the market and cater to every possible taste. I got so pissed off with Nokia that I dumped my N80 and moved on, and I'm not looking back either!.

In fact Nokia Chief Executive Olli-Pekka Kallasvuo reportly told analysts that he doesn't think Nokia, the world's No. 1 handset maker, needs to change its business approach because of the iPhone. The word moran springs instantly to mind.

Anyway, back to the iPhone. It combines three products — a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, maps, and searching — into one small and lightweight handheld device. iPhone also introduces an entirely new user interface based on a large multi-touch display and pioneering new software, letting you control everything with just your fingers.

And if the iPhone has got your juices flowing, then just as sexy and just as sleek, is this little number from the partnership of LG and Prada which is already being referred to as an iPhone Rival. Lighther than the iPhone and with just as many features including an auto focus 2 Mega Pixel camera and touch screen technology this phone is set to turn a few heads .... and its Prada darlings!

Now everyone go .... aaaaahhhhhhhh, and wipe the drool from your chin. Oh, and if anyone out there in cyberland wants to get into my pants .... now you know the price .... one of the above would do nicely, thank you very much!.
