Posts Tagged ‘2nd gen’


It all started one day on my birthday I got an iPod touch 2nd gen. Before that I had never experienced an apple product so it was not apart of my life nor my peripheral vision. I had come across iPods before as many of my friends and family had one and I would often listen to music on it.
I never felt the need to own one as I like to carry as little as possible when out so I preferred my w810 to function as a music player as well as my phone rather than having to carry two devices.

This changed when I did receive the iPod touch as I was fascinated by the accelerometer, Internet, video and other things I could play around with on the device.

I had gotten the 2nd gen touch right after launch of the AppStore so was one of the early visiters to the AppStore which had 20 to 30 apps in each category.

I fell in love with the device as everyday was a new app for me and aswell as the AppStore. Then I saw it become popular adverts and all. I still didn’t get an iPhone because I had the touch and wanted a slim light weight “dumbphone” sleek and simple and black. But somehow I got a blackberry (mistake).
The more I played around with the iPod touch the more I wanted an iPhone because the limitations if not having 3G. A lot of the apps were specifically for the iPhone and really left me feeling like I missed something. The photo apps, the navigation etc.

It wasn’t until recent that I got the iPhone4 after wanting it for so long. I got it and I love it the end. I mean what more can I say easy to use. App for anything and everything only thing is the auto correction when typing is annoying but if you turn it off it’s more frustrating.
Does any other phone come close to it I don’t think so the htc and samsung galaxy s2 maybe but not in terms of apps which make! The phone.

The growing popularity with the iPhone amongst my circles has enabled group chat with what’s app, constant facetiming, multiplayer gaming. Which beat just having BBM on blackberry fad.
