53 - The speed of technology development
The 2800 was only available from MM just before Christmas and at that time it was state of the art technology. On the same day that I received the iPhone, (Wed. 13th Jan.), I received an email from MM informing me that they will shortly launch an “app” for the iPhone enabling one to load OS maps etc. using the iPhone in the same way as the 2800. If one had not bought the 2800 a month ago and also had the intention of getting an iPhone there would be no need for the 2800, but I now have them both, and will have the disadvantage of carrying both with their respective chargers. Gadgets now seem to be out of date even before they come onto the market!
Further posts will follow on the viability of the iPhone for blogging, and in particular I am interested to discover whether photos from the phone can be uploaded onto a blog.
