For regular readers of MOBILITY, I am known as Emmanuel, “The Android fan
man boy”. If you are new to the blog, that is not far from the truth. I love the power I get from Android devices along with the ability to pretty much tweak it to my satisfaction software wise.
A few months back I, an ardent hater of anything Blackberry, got a Blackberry device. My sanity was questioned, my loyalty in doubt and NCC threatened to ban me (just kidding). The same thing I said back then when I got the BlackBerry phone is the same thing that I’m going to say now:
I want to experience what it feels like in
Boy, did I get the said experience with the BlackBerry!! After seeing so many rotating clocks (when the Blackberry phone hangs), I now hate black clocks. It wasn’t all bad though. BlackBerry Messenger proved to be very useful along with the always-on social connectivity. But that aside, there wasn’t much that the BlackBerry phone did well.
For critics out there, you can call it all you want but for me to be a true mobilista, at least to myself barring everybody else, I want to have it known that I did not let my view of how little I think iOS/iPhone can do limit me to never actually using one. This does not mean I’m platform agnostic though. I still very much love Android and that love isn’t going anywhere anytime soon.
So in my quest, I have for one changed my mentality (a bit) as regards to actually thinking of using an iDevice. The next step is to actually get an iPhone 5, which on this side of the world still costs a ton. Anybody interested in dashing/giving me one? 🙂
