I have waited for a couple of years now for the announcement. Finally … it came. Verizon Wireless will have the Apple iPhone in February 2011. Less than a month away. Woo Hoo?
If you’ve followed me for any length of time you know that I’m an Apple addict. I’ve had Mac-only computers since I graduated from college. My first Mac was a Centris 610. On yeah. Then I graduated to a Quadra. There are (6) Macs in my home right now, believe it or not. (some are just stored in the attic, awaiting the day I take the time to sell them on Ebay).
So it’s only natural that I’d have an iPhone, right? Well … not exactly. The truth is, AT&T’s coverage in our location is spotty at best. I can’t even make a call in my own home. So I’ve stuck with Verizon who gives me signal in almost every place I’ve ever been in the USA. (and that’s a lot of places) So I got tired of waiting for the Verizon iPhone and got the Motorola Droid X last Summer.
So here’s a few reasons why I’m NOT planning on buying a Verizon iPhone in February:
#2. I actually LIKE my DroidX. It’s not without it’s glitches, but the phone is only 6 months old.
#4. I can use my phone as an internet modem for my laptop or computer for no extra fee (thanks to PDANet)
#5. So far … there are no must-have apps for my daily use that I can’t get on Android.
That being said – Let me say, I think the iPhone is one of the most amazing technological devices made. I love it. I still “want one” … but I don’t “need one”.
And lastly – my official disclaimer that I may eventually get the iPhone anyway. I’m just not going to be rushing to the Verizon Store on Day #1. For now, my DroidX does everything I need. (with the exception of giving me the iPhone coolness vibe).
How ’bout you … will you be switching?
