Losing My Apple Fanboy Status
I turned in my 2nd iPhone after a week of usage. Why?
Couple reasons, the phone isn't THAT great and the carrier is subpar. Chris Dixon took the words out of my mouth - you never buy a phone, you buy a phone/carrier combo.
Here's what I'm looking for in my next phone:
- Seamless integration with Google (Gmail, Google Voice, Google Docs, Wave, etc)
- Plan that includes ~700 minutes, unlimited messaging & data for under $80
- Open platform for developers
- Long battery life. Like 2+ days without a charge
