Hello, Angry Birds!

Look what got delivered yesterday:

Isn’t she pretty?

I’ve been a long-time BlackBerry user and I didn’t make this switch lightly. BlackBerry is a really great phone, and it’s what the majority of my friends use. I already miss BlackBerry’s Messenger feature, and right now I really miss the keyboard that has actual buttons (typing on iPhone’s touch screen is just awful right now… I’ve said so many things I didn’t mean to say!). I’m also not crazy that the iPhone doesn’t push my emails through the second they arrive on the server – the quickest setting is every 15 minutes unless I check them manually. Not a big deal, but I got spoiled by my BlackBerry.

Other than that, the phone is fabulous. I now have iBooks, and Winnie the Pooh came free – it looks amazing! Blogging, Facebook and Twitter also look better and are easier to navigate (which will help my productivity on these sites – my editor has encouraged me to increase my social networking efforts, and now I have no excuses), and having iTunes right on the phone is convenient.

Okay, now I’m going back to work. (I will not play Angry Birds, I will not play Angry Birds, I will not play Angry Birds… gee, maybe I’m not going to be as productive with my new phone as I thought!)

Does your phone help or hurt your productivity?
