Ahh, go over to the Nokia forum. They are up in arms about how someone who HAS and USES a Nokia N95 could possibly swallow Steve Jobs’ hype and covet an iPhone.
I guess they missed my earlier blogs where I detailed all the ways the N95 was better than the iPhone. Let’s see again, GPS (yes, I’ve used it, it takes four minutes to get a lock most of the time), better camera (kudos, but the experience of using it absolutely sucks compared to the iPhone, but it does make MUCH better images), replaceable battery (my battery today was used for normal phone and some browsing starting at about 9 a.m. and it was dead by 7 p.m. so you damn well better get a replaceable battery), 3G (but not in the United States, only in Europe), video recording (one place where Apple screwed up), better developer platform (normal people don’t care), games included (Apple isn’t gonna leave that hole open for long).
Ahh, religion is a funny thing.
I can’t wait to see a serious iPhone competitor come from Nokia with the same kinds of features. It’ll be fun to go back to the religious types then.
These fans remind me of the geeks at San Jose State University who worked in the computer center back in 1991. They told me “who needs a mouse and menus? They are only needed by idiots.”
Anyway, if Nokia fans think this kind of “evangelism” is going to serve them, or the company they love, well, then hats off to you. You make the freakiest Apple fan seem pretty normal now and that’s hard to do. Congratulations!
