Say hello to my new little friend 06.26.2010

As you probably could have guessed, I picked up my iPhone 4 on Thursday when they went on sale to the public. Since I am a rabid Apple fan and I love toys & technology, I've gotten all 4 phones that Apple has produced on the day they have been released. In fact, me and a few of my friends camped out for the first phone back in 2007.

This year, I took advantage of the RSVP system that Apple incorporated and reserved one they day they started taking reservations, but there will still crazy long lines when I went to the mall at lunchtime due to the slow activation process and overwhelming demand. Thankfully my outstanding employee Kathleen wanted a phone too and volunteered to stnad in line for us. I was able to sneak out of my Thursday night poker game and meet her at the mall just in time!

Anywho... after playing with the phone for a few days, I can once again say that Apple did not disappoint. The phone is amazing! I love it. I know there have been some media reports about a few people having issues, and those reports tend to get exaggerated, but I haven't experienced any problems with mine yet (knock on wood).

Likes:

The feel of this phone is incredible. It's solid. When Steve remarked that it has the craftsmanship of an old Leica camera he wasn't kidding.

The new camera is amazing. 5 megapixels. I use my point & shoot camera less and less these days. I also like the front facing camera, which I intend to use often. The flash works really good too. (Except I am blinded for a few moments after each use. It's very powerful). The videos are also really clean!

The screen is gorgeous. So sharp, photos look amazing.

I love the unified inbox, but you don't have to get the new phone to get that. You just have to upgrade to the iOS4 software (FREE).

Same with multitasking & the folders for apps. Nice new features, but you don't need to get the new phone to take advantage of it.

The battery life is awesome. I used it all day yesterday. I left the house at 10am and I didn't get home until 1am and still had about a third of the battery icon remaining.

The new Facetime thing is neat, but I don't know how accessible I want to be for just anyone. I can see using it when I talk to Keats, or a super close friend, but I don't know that I need to talk face to face with just anyone. Also, I got a call while in the restroom yesterday and I had to go ahead and ignore that one.


Dislikes:

It's still on the AT&T network.

Other than that, the phone is awesome and I don't care what DJ says. ;-)

Here's a flash photo of Caden & I seeing Toy Story 3D yesterday:
