iPhone home

It's a week and a half now living with the iPhone. It truly is a great device. Not perfect but, by far, the best hand held device I've owned.

One major advantage is not having to lug my Macbook Pro around everywhere. I can read my email, RSS feeds and eBooks anywhere, anytime.

Another major plus is having my full iTunes collection and podcasts with me.

A lot of the built-in apps work really well and provide the right level of functionality for those of us on the go.

The ringtones are well thought out and pleasant -- you can, of course, with the right software, use any song as the ringtone.

Here are a few of the pluses and minuses:

Pros
  • Fantastic integration
  • Wireless, automatic calendar and contact synchronisation
  • Great selection of applications (see favourites below)

Cons
  • No cut'n'paste
  • No background apps (yes, I could JailBreak the phone)
  • Rubbish camera
