Apple or NokiaPosted: August 28, 2007
After all that wait, I decided not to by one, as most of you know, I’m a Mac addict, I love every thing that has that apple logo on it, and the iPhone is surly one of them, so why not get one you say? here is my story, when the iPhone was first released, I rushed to the Apple store to see it and try it (yes that is my hand in the photo) like every one els, and when you try the iPhone for the first time you will get that WOW factor, and I wanted one so badly, that I thought of buying it just to own one, note that it id sim locked, which means I can’t use it in Kuwait, so after few days they release and unlock software for it but you can only use it as a PDA, so I went again to the Apple store to try it again and see if it worth buying a PDA for 200 KD, so I tried it again, and thought “well, let me wait till they unlock the phone option too” but I wanted a devise that syncs with my Mac so badly, that is one down side with the mac, it is not compatible with all the phones, so I went for the third time to the store and tried it again, and guess what happened this time, the WOW factor was gone, I found out that the iPhone is just another mobile phone, with limited “phone” options, don’t get me wrong it is still a nice phone, but it does not worth all the wait, and God knows when will the release a version for Kuwait with Arabic support, after few days I was telling a friend of mine about my problem and asked him how does he sync his Nokia mobile with his Mac, he said that Nokia, has released a full support for the Mac! I was shocked so to make the store short, I went back home and checked there web site, and now ladies and gentlemen I’m the owner of a Nokia communicator E90.
so what does all that have to do with photography? well one of Nokia’s software for the Mac is one called “Nokia Multimedia Transfer” and it transfer your photos from your computer to your phone with a press of a button, not only that, it even shrinks the size of the photo to fit your mobile screen, nice ha 🙂
