I absolutely love my iPod Touch, and I was thinking that if and when I decided to upgrade to a smartphone, it would be an iPhone.
But you know what? Now that Google apps are so nicely connected, and I can sync my iTunes playlists to my Blackberry, I think I may just stick with my current mobile provider and get myself a Canadian smartphone!
I've resisted getting a smartphone, and I've sort of prided myself on only using my mobile phone to talk. But I have to say that even the glimpses I've had of mobile access through my iPod have really tempted me to get with the times. I guess I'd better start doing some thumb-strengthening exercises!
I do worry about always being connected (I tend to veer towards workaholism if I'm not careful), so I will need to practice good self-care and set clear boundaries for myself . Luckily, I've had lots of practice doing that. These things do have an OFF button, don't they?
My iPod Touch isn't going anywhere either! It has quickly become my home stereo system, my alarm clock, and (occasionally) a way to listen to a teleclass recording or some tunes while I walk Chyna.
My next stop is to the mall to actually try out the phones in my hands. The buttons absolutely must be comfortable!!
What do you think? Any recommendations (or warnings) about taking this leap? The Google Tutor has some great articles about the pros and cons of syncing with email using the Blackberry Internet Account or the Gmail mobile application. Which do you use? Please comment below – thanks!
