It's like holding the universe in my pocket. I love being notified about emails. Pointless checking is history.
Apps like Shazam and Midomi - you sing into the phone and it tells you what you're singing (No more wondering `What is that tune in my head?') are extraodinary.
As for download games - I was playing Blade Dash on it for about two hours last night. I felt like I was back in the arcade it's so good!
Music - it's an Ipod, we know it's good for that ;)
And as for reading - well, I downloaded Bram Stoker's Dracula. I'm now reading on the Ipod :)
Amazing. I drop a star only due to battery life.
But I'm a happy happy customer!!
