Pitch the iPhone, it’s Back to Blackberry!

November 17, 2008

The great experiment has ended.  After almost a year of typing out emails with one finger, I’ve sidelined my first-gen iPhone for a new Blackberry (the Bold 9000, for those who care.)  At last, I can write faster than a first-grader practicing his penmanship!  While the iPhone is spiffy for its looks and remarkable slipperiness (I dropped one in Manhattan.  $265 later I got a re-conditioned one, after the injured unit started rattling and stopped working), it’s a lousy device for business.  I’m so happy to be back in action with a REAL KEYBOARD that lets me respond quickly and efficiently to emails.  Viva Blackberry!
