The iPhone wins in my book

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Russell Realty Group

The iPhone wins in my book. I have a used a Blackberry for many years and the need for me to get a second phone line has arisen, so I decided to go the iPhone route and I must say I'm very impressed. The best part about the iPhone is the wonderful applications that are available for download.

There are many real estate applications that can help us in the everyday real estate world to make searching properties much easier on-the-fly. Such as having the embedded GPS navigation understand where you are and tell you what houses are for sale around you and the ability to find a restaurant for you take your clients at the end of the showings within seconds. The redfin app is great and easy to use, the zillow app also has some great features built in and of course the best app, evernote!

The touch screen is a bit different than the keyboard I am use to, but the menu, screen resolution and functionality of the phone itself, is very impressive... Just my thoughts 2 weeks into the switch or should say addition

I think the iphone is a great unit, but until they offer it on something other than AT&T I'm going to pass.

I'm using a Windows Mobile smartphone on Sprint, and just bought new Windows computers and loaded Windows 7.

And I own a very small slice of Microsoft.

And I put my wife on notice.  The folks in Redmond have 2 to 3 years to bring me unadulterated joy, or I'm finally turning the whole shooting match over to Apple.

Hopefully the Android operating system from Google will have some killer phones for the rest of the world that doesn't do AT&T.

The iPhone is certainly cool... but so is the G1 (the phone based on Google Android).  And the iPhone doesn't interface with my eKey...  Neither does the G1.  But my Blackberry does...

I am extremely pleased with my iPhone and can't wait until Verizon eventually gets the iPhone because I would love to see my entire team on the iPhone.
