Typing this on my new iPhone via GoGo wireless at 20,000 feet without the aid of Siri speech. The soft keyboard and word spelling correction is working surprisingly well. I’m leveraging the WordPress app to make this blog entry – that creates the Tweet and FaceBook post. I’m not suffering it is actually pretty easy to highlight text, fast switch with a double click on the home button to Safari web to search or get a URL, copy and come back.
I will say that the data service for email and calendar is slow compared to blackberry on our Microsoft exchange server. Mostly I believe it’s the rich text downloading. The flexibility to use quality tools like this and other real Apps are a big plus though and after six months side by side with an iPhone 4 on my personal line it made sense to switch. The company was moving away from the blackberry as a standard anyway – only iPhones and Androids from now on.
I will dictate my next post – see how that goes.
