It’s no secret that many of us here at Student Affairs Women Talk Tech are big iPhone / iPad fans. So of course we couldn’t let today’s news of a Verizon iPhone
pass unnoticed. Below, a roundup of the coverage of today’s big event:
The Unofficial Apple Weblog: “Verizon iPhone Can’t Handle Data and Voice Simultaneously” (as an aside, I have to confess that this is where my geekiness breaks down. I just don’t get why this is a big deal? How can you see your data when you’re talking onthe phone? And if the answer is speakerphone, then just no. HATE speakerphone — plus it’s rude to read your email, surf whatever while you’re on the phone. Call me old-fashioned. But sometimes I think tech blogs just look for things to complain about. I’m not planning on switching from AT&T right now, but this is not something that would stop me if I were planning to do so. Am I missing something?)
TechCrunch: “What’s So Special About the Verizon iPhone? Personal Hotspots” (now that is something I could get behind as a reason for switching).
What about you? Are you excited about the Verizon iPhone? Planning to switch from AT&T or get one for the first time? Or do you think the iPhone is overrated? Let us know in the comments!
