I admit I continue to like my iPhone and I don’t regret the purchase, even though I was one of those who paid more to get it sooner. And I’m really looking forward to what David Pogue calls iPhone 2.0 in his column,
Hello BlackBerry, Meet the iPhone in yesterday’s New York Times.
But damn, I wish the battery lasted longer. Every time I really use it, a day’s worth of use gets the battery into that nasty edge of power area. It turns the battery icon red and complains, and warns, and complains.
In his technology column, David Pogue says:
The release of iPhone 2.0 is over three months away, but I’ll stick my neck out and make a prediction: it will be a gigantic success, spreading the iPhone’s popularity both upward, into the corporate market, and downward, into the hands of the masses. iPhone 2.0 will turn this phone into an engineering tool, a game console, a free-calls Skype phone, a business tool, a dating service, an e-book reader, a chat room, a database, an Etch-a-Sketch, and that’s on Day One.
And I say that’s all cool, and I’m looking forward to it, but I’ll end up like I now am, loving my iPhone for all its cool features but using it mainly as a phone, because if I get a lot of email with it, or use it as an ipod, it runs out of battery before I run out of day.
