for people not real savy unless you use the stuff that's forced down your throat it's a bit complicated..
That is why I think the apple products will eventually fail and the android will grab majority of the marketshare..
Thats odd !!?
I am not an "ifan",.. almost the opposite infact, but most of my family use iPhones and the main reason the use to support their choice is how EASY it is to load/download music, video, photos, docs etc etc using itunes. ?
I am of the.. "keep it simple, keep it small" .. mind set , and think all these new smart phones are too big for carrying around ( shorts & T shirts !), so i spent a lot of tine sourcing a small Android ( 3" screen & thin ) that fits my needs.
SIDE NOTE :
on a recent o'seas visit to N Y , i could not find anyone to sell me a local pre-paid USA SIM card for my phone. however i could buy a Pre paid little Nokia AT&T phone with a Sim card for $18 !. Now it has been a few years since i used a Nokia ( went through the Blackberry phase !) , but my god was it a breeze to use again !
.. none of the fancy smart phone stuff, but phone , text, Email, GPS, photos, etc ..all simple easy to use in a tiny slim phone with a battery that lasted for a week !
Actually i was a little pissed that i couldnt get it unlocked to use an my home network back in Aus !
