Well my generation 1 iPhone died last night. In it's final gasps the touchscreen began failing to the point it was unusable. It was certainly a prized part of my kit. I carried it everywhere and loved how non iPhone owners marveled at it, but considering it's flaws and my needs it is time to part - for now. I am an 80% business user 20% music listener. With this failure I either have to accept the faults inherent in the device and replace it with a new one or buy both a new phone and a new iPod. I have opted for the latter. The poor audio quality on calls has always irked me. The problems with fractures on the new iPhone cases and the more expensive data plan turn me off. My recent reality of relying on a single device who's failure caused me to loose all of my mobile functionality (business + personal) is just too much of a risk. I ordered my new Nokia E71 last night and a new 16gb Nano. Now when I am away 5 days a week I don't have to worry about my music listening on a plane leaving me with a dead battery or without email upon arrival. Now I can charge my iPod once a week and not worry about running out of juice because of checking emails before my flight takes off. Now I can tether my phone and laptop for 3g data. Now my data plan is less expensive. Now I won't have that cool UI or a device that looks like it should be in a museum. Hopefully in future iterations of the device Apple and AT&T will deal with these issues and i will be able to return to the fold.
