The iPhone is not for me

Nope, i will not have it!  I’m not a fan of the iPhone.  I will admit that it is damn sexy, and a sleek gadget for sure but it is not for me.  This post is pretty much in regards to Elliot Swan’s post stating that he NEEDS an iPhone.  I on the other hand, do not.

Now, I think I need to quantify this previous statement. No, it’s not because i’m a PC user, no it is not because i “favor” Microsoft.  Here’s why I don’t want to spend the $500 (last price i’ve heard on its cost) on the phone.  I simply do not need a phone that is so expensive.  I just got a Motorola PEBL about 6 months ago and it works just fine (aside from a T-Mobile contract).  Also I had heard that the iPhone will only be available for Cingular and AT&T customers.  I guess that counts me out of a possible phone upgrade had i wanted one?

Also another reason, Ultra Mobile PC.  Yep, I purchased my UMPC a few months back and I use it one heck of a lot more than my phone.  I’m pretty certain call computer related tasks the iPhone can do, my UMPC can do (I will not make a statement regarding which could perform these tasks better).

Oh and in other news, good ole’ Chippy from Carrypad just pointed out to me that Cisco is currently suing Apple over the iPhone!  HA-HA!

    Me neither – and there are way too many reasons for it and I’m kinda on the same boat with ya.
    Just posted some more details here, if you are interested.
