I’ll admit it, I’ve wanted an iPhone for a long time. I don’t really know why, given that I haven’t compared the features available with any other smart phone, but I’ve always wanted one. Maybe I’m just falling into the rep surrounding the iPhone, but I’ve wanted one for a while.
For a long time, it wasn’t an option. I’ve been a Sprint customer for almost a decade now. Until recently, iPhones weren’t even an option. As such, I could look longingly at the iPhones, but I couldn’t get one unless I switched networks. I really didn’t want that kind of hassle.
But, then Sprint got iPhones. I could finally get one…except I couldn’t. As cool as they seem, I still need a physical keyboard. I’ve got calluses on the ends of my fingers. Every time I try to use virtual keyboards, I type even slower than back when I had to use a numeric keypad. It just doesn’t work, and I get pissed.
So, what does this mean? Well, I’m probably never going to be able to get an iPhone. I doubt they are ever going to make one with a physical keyboard. I’m stuck with my HTC touch. It isn’t bad, but it isn’t an iPhone.
I just want to be one of the cool kids.
