how many of you that have one allso have a mac?
and are you missing the best of it if you dont?
I have a major dislike of Mac's & their fanboys, but g/f got one as an upgrade, I tried it - I signed up for my first ever contract phone and 'paid' for my first phone. I always had hand me down phones previously, as a phone is a tool not a 'must have toy' to me.
Don't see why you need a mac to get the best out of the phone, unfortunately your stuck with that desperately shit itunes to get music and content onto the phone - only downside IMO.
Yes the battery is a bit rubbish, though not for browsing IME (wtf are you guys doing?), only when you use it to watch videos or use gps, but I only have to leave it on charge at night (it does seem to charge pretty damned quickly though), no bigge really. Otherwise you can get external battery if you are away from a power point for length of time or just get a usb/car charger.
Mine means I can connect to the internet 99% of the time, and so am never bored when 'waiting' for appointments or just have time spare doing nothing. Watching media/films on it is extremely good too & it's a damned good mp3 player. Mines (32GB) allowed me to carry music I'd never normally have loaded onto a player before (due to size) and have ended up listening to loads of stuff I wouldn't have otherwise... Not ground breaking (after all the ipod been around years), but as a mobile device (not 'just' a phone) I really enjoy mine (still after 6 months) & would recommend itm if any of the above options appeal to you.
