couple of quick iPhone thoughts this morning

3 things about the phone this morning:

1) i really miss a few things from other devices — even back on my original palm pilot, there was a row of 4 application buttons — you could assign them to any applications. the iPhone would really benefit from those — 1 button access to calendar, mail, phone and ipod (or whatever 4 apps you want). i think there’s plenty of room on the front to accommodate, and it’d help a lot.

2) i haven’t done a lot of testing on this yet, but seems like when you wake up the phone, it’s connected to EDGE (naturally, since to receive calls you’ve got to always be talking with cell towers), but the WiFi takes maybe 3-5 seconds to wake up. so for a guy like me, who wakes it up to check e-mails in a sadly OCD quick way, sometimes i get to checking mail before the faster connection kicks in, which results in a slower e-mail checking time than if i had taken longer to do the…um…what do you call these things…gestures? swipes? you know what i mean.

3) it’s killing me a little bit that you can’t rearrange icons on the home screen — that would help a lot very quickly.

i set up a Flickr contact this morning so that i can send pictures that i take to flickr automatically — but haven’t gotten the flickr2blog stuff to work right yet. will play with that later.

  1. Do you think Apple could have released a non-phone version with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, and had the same success? Is it worth ditching your previous cell phone, and possibly your plan for this all-in-one device?

  3. Been using Symbian UIQ and WM5 mobile phone in the past several years. I would love to see a breath of fresh air to the industry.If only someone, somewhere, can find a way to unlock the iPhone… then I’m definitely in
