What is the Attraction of the Iphone
There is no doubt that in launching the iPhone in 2007, Apple changed the game in cell phones. And as we wait for the latest installment, the iPhone 5, there is just as much interest in this piece of mobile technology as there was 4 years ago. So just what is it that has people going starry-eyed at their favorite object of desire?
The iPhone is certainly not alone in the world of the smart phone. Every manufacturer out there has their own version. All offer fairly similar specs. Large touch screens, built in web navigation, a whole host of apps and the latest in portable music and video. But although most smart phone owners would happily exchange their phone for an iPhone, I can't think of many iPhone users who would change for another model. Just why is this?
Steve Jobs and Apple managed to do two things with the iPhone. The first was to elevate a simple cell phone into an object of desire. If you look at the ads, very few of them actually talk about the technology. Most concentrate on the looks and style. The second thing that Apple has done, is to make the iPhone part of a whole range. This obviously includes other Apple products, but also the Apple store. And look at the programmers who are creating apps for the iPhone every single day.
Of course, the problem with this is that a new iPhone means that you need to do something with the old one. With environmental concerns growing over the huge number of used mobile phones, it is an excellent opportunity to pass your used iPhone on to one of the charities that use them for soldiers abroad or the elderly here in the USA for example. These charities recondition phones if necessary and then put them to good use. This is both helpful to those less-fortunate and a green-friendly move that will reduce pollution.
A new cell phone nowadays often means an iPhone. It is rare to find a user who isn't satisfied with their iPhone and joining their ranks is certainly tempting. Apple's smart phone does pretty much everything that you could wish for in a phone, but also does it in an elegant package that people love to display. If you do consider upgrading, don't forget that there are better options than throwing the old model away, or leaving it forgotten in a drawer. Getting in touch with a charity that specializes in used cell phones could give it a new lease of life while you enjoy your new iPhone.
