I am a strong advocate of the idea of ‘one device’
One mobile device that is. For all needs, phone, reading books, listening to music, anything.
And for the longest time, thats been my huge T-Mobile MDA II.
But, recently, I have been lusting after an ipod nano.
But, i realise that this lust is simply that, I don’t use my phone for much mp3 playing, for the simple reason that I am very rarely mobile,
so having a single use device for the purpose of listening to music on the go is not a supportable idea.
What I really want, is the ‘completion of the set’. MBP and an iPod go together, and having experienced the polish of the user experience of the Mac, I have a hankering for the complementary experience of the iPod user interface.
Also, if I did get an ipod, I have this feeling I would feel like I was missing out if I did not get one that could play games. That leads me away from a nano and on to a standard iPod, and if I go THAT far, I would want one that could store my entire collection, so that would be an 80gig model, and there goes 300gbp! Its a bit much to say I have ‘experienced the UI’.
Ok. maybe I should just forget it.
