I have succumbed to hype and bought an Apple iPhone 3G. It is probably the most expensive, fragile gadget to sit in my pocket. After a day of downloading apps and playing around with it, all I can say is that it’s just a nice toy for now. Its small size, easy user interface, Wi-Fi and GPS capability make it potentially one of the best gadgets to have for travelers.
I'm off to Northern Thailand for a week of mountain biking and I'll be bringing the iPhone with me. Hopefully, I'll have something positive to write about when I get back.
