iPhone 4S Mania
Trying out posting from the WordPress app for iOS on my new iPhone 4S. I’ve waited a long time for this–patiently waiting for T-Mobile to either finish getting swallowed by AT&T or actually get the blessing from Apple to be able to sell the iPhone–but to no avail. So at midnight on the date for pre-orders, along with several million other people, I did my part to help bring Apple’s and AT&T’s servers to their knees. After trying to order through the Apple Store with multiple failed attempts, I finally went to AT&T’s site and had a tough time there as well until about the third time it finally allowed me to complete the order and violá, I was on the fortunate waiting list for the first batch of iPhone 4Ss. Evidently not as fortunate as some in Germany, but hey, at least it didn’t come later.
So, I’ve been enjoying the transition from the old-school RAZR (don’t laugh–you know they still look cool) that I’ve had since forever, to the new paradigm of actually having a truly smart phone.
But just to catch up on what I’ve missed out on over the past two or three years, I also ordered a 4 and a 3GS for the rest of the family and can now have a pretty full spectrum of experience with the iPhones that have really mattered.
One thing I can say is that I probably won’t make a regular practice of posting from my iPhone, but I’m glad that I can and have enjoyed the opportunity to try it out. However, it’s main drawback with the small screen real estate and lack of a real keyboard for speedier typing, make it harder to put a well-written post. Of course I have other impediments to being able to write a well-written post, but I’ll be glad to use this as my main excuse for this post. Until next time..
