So I ventured to the Apple store this afternoon with the intention of purchasing an iPhone, yet left sans device after being rather unimpressed. Granted it is a huge step forward in technology, but it really just seemed a bit lackluster to me. I really and truly like my Blackberry Pearl better (gasp!). I am an avid Apple fan, owning an iMac, MBP, iPod Nano etc., but this phone already seems dated and it's only 2 days old! The gadget itself looks rather Frankenstein-ian to me. The black and chrome on the front is nice, but the brushed aluminum (I know, I know - to prevent scratches) backing with the ugly black band on the bottom just doesn't have that clean iPod video gleam to it. And despite everyone's gushing of it's thin form factor, it seemed HUGE to me. Software seemed glitchy too. I guess I really wished it was an iPod video with larger screen and phone capabilities. Dunno. Anyway, just my two cents. I don't hate it, just think it can be much better. I can definitely think of other things I'd rather buy with $600 right now.
