iPhone .. Wow

Got my iPhone today !!

I am genuinely impressed by how good it is, I was a bit weary that it would be a big gimmicky and the novelty would wear off within 5 minutes, but instead I am please and impressed by how good it functions, and how great it will work for my needs.

First thing I did was to setup my Exchange work mail, and it works like a dream, I love the ability to zoom in to get a closer look at the text, but I must say, the screen resolution is so good, that there really isnt much need to zoom.

The phone is set to check my main 3 email accounts every 30 minutes (I can set it for much shorter times), I set all my accounts to IMAP (and exchange) so not to get a false “new mail” on the phone if I have already got it on my laptop.

The wifi works like a threat .. it automatically uses the wifi when available instead of the gprs/edge connection.

I pay around with google maps, it’s not a GPS system, but it does come in handy, besides, I had the N95 a month or so back, and found it’s GPS system worthless, better leave it to TOMTOM

I still have lots to play around and discover on it, have not yet had the chance to check visual voicemail .. guess I better just leave a few messages to myself to check that part 🙂

I’m not a reviewer of hardware, and not trying to make this post into one, I am just so stocked at how great this thing works 😀

  1. In case you still use your n95 at all and want to use the GPS, do two things a) download the newish firmware and b) download google maps. It uses the n95 GPS and it is awesome, locks on very very quickly and really useful for walking around (probably a bit small for driving). I couldn’t get the GPS to work at all before but after doing those two things (not sure which of the two fixed it) it works great.
