A little over a year ago, I posted about how I became an iGeek by standing in line and buying the iPhone 3GS. Just 13 short months later, I’m about to make another switch to another new platform: I’m going Android.
Most of you have no idea what I’m talking about, and care even less, but to me, it’s a big change. I’ve done my research, I’ve picked what I believe is the best phone, and best of all, in the end, I’m paying little to do it. Surprisingly, my iPhone 3GS is worth more than I bought it for a year ago, and I’m going to capitalize on that. I’ve got a ton of reasons for switching to the Android platform, and dropping AT&T, but I’ll go into that another time. It’ll simply take too long to explain in this post.
So I’ve already ordered my Motorola Droid X for Verizon, and despite an ordering snafu (I should have received it today, but didn’t) I’ll be getting the phone on Monday (fingers crossed). This is actually one time where I’m going to write an actual review. I know that it’s been done a million times by other tech sites, but I’ve seen them all over the board, and considering I don’t make any money from my site, I want to post a review that my peers and people I know will actually find informative. So that’ll be coming, but not before I’ve had a chance to test the phone out, and come to the proper conclusions.
Anyway, I’ve been staring at pictures of this phone all week, and got my hands on a co-worker’s today, and can’t wait for mine to come in. I’ve already got a huge list of apps ready to be downloaded to my new phone, and am already planning the cases, etc that I’ll eventually buy for it.
I do realize I’m a huge nerd, but I’ve embraced it, and present it as my eccentricity.
