I Love My New iPhone 4!

I have been rocking a 2G iPhone for the past few years.. Because I got my phone long after the initial rush, I wasn’t eligible for the 3G upgrade when it first came out. When the 3GS finally came out, I thought about doing the early upgrade, but figured I should just hold out, as another new iPhone would be coming the following June. It was a pain at times, as the 2G service is AWFUL, and I’d watch stuff come up so fast on the 3GS. But I waited, and I finally got my hands on the iPhone 4 last week.

At first, it was a little underwhelming. Sure, there were some new features I didn’t have before, but it wasn’t a HUGE change, more of an improvement on an already awesome product.

But then I played with iBooks today, and it was a game-changer for me! I have HUNDREDS of PDFs scattered across my desktop. SEO, social media, gurus, etc. Stuff that I actually want to read at some point, but just never find the time. The perfect time to read these things? When I’m traveling. But since I rarely bring my laptop with me anymore, that becomes a problem.

But no longer is this a problem! iBooks lets me load my PDFs onto my phone, and I can read them while I’m on a train, plane, boat, etc. This is a HUGE deal for me, well worth the $199 upgrade price! Facetime and other do-dads might be fun in the short-term, this will really be useful for me in the long-haul. If I had an iPad, it would even be better, but I’m not looking to lug something around with me all the time. My phone is always in my pocket, so if the wife decides to spend an extra 20 minutes shopping while I’m in the car, I can now fire up my latest PDF, and get reading.

Yeah, I’m a dork.. Whatever. 🙂

    One thing I don’t like about the new phone is the Proximity Sensor bug.. My face or ear are constantly muting my calls, which cause the caller to think I dropped the call and hang up.

    A frustrating bug, but Steve Jobs says it’ll be fixed in the next OS update!
