- I long resisted owning a cell phone. I don't like talking on the phone (especially since that's what I do for a living), so I didn't want to carry one around with me. But to insure my wife had phone access in the case of an emergency, I broke down and we ended up with a pair of Nokia flip phones. I didn't carry it with me (it stayed in my messenger bag most of the time), but it paved the way for the switch two years ago to the Android-based HTC Incredible. I really enjoyed that phone. But as our contract period came to an end, it was a hard decision as to what to buy next.
- Last weekend, my wife and I switched to the iPhone 4S.
- It was not an easy decision, though it would have been much harder it the Samsung Galaxy S III was in stock at the time. But when it came time to choose, it broke down into two reasons to switch:
- Curiousity - After using an Android phone for a couple years, I was damned curious to see what everyone was raving about. With all the hype, I had to know for myself if it was worth it.
- The App Store - More concrete though, I wanted to see it the Apple App Store, and more specifically the games, were all it was cracked up to be. After seeing game after game announced for iOS, with maybe an Android point somewhere down the line, my frustration had grown exponentially.
