I don't really need an iPhone. Then again, does anyone really "need" one?
Not only that, but I've never really wanted one. They seem shiny and bright and they make lots of cool noises. But I've always been a phone is a phone is a phone kinda guy. Even when I "upgraded" to a Palm phone about a year ago. It's not really in the same "class" as the iPhone or most of the Android phones, but it does everything I want it to do.
And lately, I've been find it does so much more. I've now got Pandora and Spotify running on it. Didn't even realize that was an option. And there is a iTunes app that I'm considering, although I don't really need it. The web browser is pretty fast too. Many times, Gia and I have looked things up at the same time on our devices. She, armed with her iPhone and iPad, me armed with my Palm phone. I dunno man...most of the time I find the answer, location, whatever first.
But now, Sprint has the iPhone 4S. I'm a Sprint loyalist. Not because it's any better than any of the other cell carriers out there. It's probably not. But because I've had little to no issues with them. That's been good enough for me for going on a dozen years now. And it's been a year since my last phone purchase, so my extra discount kicks in. I can get a new iPhone 4S for as little as $199.
If I want to.
I'm just having a hard time deciding if I want to.
My current phone isn't only good enough, it's MORE than good enough. There is a ton of useless crap that I can do with it now that I'm just not interested enough to bother with. Will an iPhone even be worth it for me?
So, for now, I'll probably pass on the iPhone 4S. I just don't think it's for me.
Besides, I kinda dig being an Apple curmudgeon. "Get off my lawn, you incredibly smart device that everyone else in the world loves!"
