The article, by Managing Editor for PCMag Mobile, Sascha Segan, begins matter of factly:
"The iPhone 4 is the best iPhone ever. That's for certain. It's the best media playing phone on the market, a terrific camera phone, and a truly awesome game-playing phone.".Yeah, yeah, yeah. I know all that, but I want to know about the quality of the calls--coverage, clarity, etc. I mean, afterall, it IS a phone, no?
Sascha must have read my thoughts because his next sentence was:
"It's not the best phone-calling phone, but we've gone well beyond the era when everyone bought handheld, networked computers primarily for making long voice calls"We had? I must have fallen for that nano-age-old marketing ploy of calling it the "i-PHONE." Well, if you can't beat 'em, join 'em...or just gracefully admit that you are extinct. When I was looking for a picture of a Mudgeasaurus to close out this post, wouldn't you know it, I found a dinosaur app for the iPhone. It shouldn't be much longer that my liquid carbon remains will be bubbling up from the Gulf.
