My smartphone debate

This is a hard one for me. I’ve admired the iPhone for years and considered getting one. But I’ve held off. Then there are the Android phones which get better every year, not to mention the new iPhones. A smartphone promises instant and constant connectivity, access to unlimited information at the swipe of a finger.

It’s now 2011 and I am looking at the latest version of the iPhone (Verizon anyone?). But is this a need or a want? Last summer I got an iPod Touch and absolutely love it. I use it for email, a calendar, a Bible, Facebook, and much more. I’m now more connected then ever before. What if I take the next step? I’m questioning whether this really helps in the simple lifestyle I want to live. I’ll let you know what happens.
