Thanks to Walmart, I’ve been given the opportunity to do a long term review of the iPhone 3G. I’ll admit this is probably not a purchase I would have made myself, because I’m not convinced it’s worth the extra expense, both for the phone itself or for the extras on the cell phone plan I don’t normally pay for.
However, the geek in me is thrilled for the opportunity to give the iPhone a test drive. And everyone I know who has an iPhone just adores it! So I’m wondering if I’ve been wrong all along. Is a SmartPhone with a data plan worth the added expense?
Over the next couple of months I will be tracking the time and money I save by using the iPhone, so I guess I’ll have my own answer then. But I’m interested in what you think.
Is the expense worth it? In the end will I save time? Money? What do you think?
