so, what might the "average users" be doing with their iphone?
just about everybody I know who owns and uses the iphone complains about this. for me it's a nightmare, my desk and travel bag is full of scraps of paper with addresses and phone numbers.
I was watching a business man at paris airport 2 days ago, copying stuff onto a paper napkin, then retyping it into his iphone, swearing under his breath...
Forwarding a few lines of an email to a 3rd person - the rest of the email is nobody else's business - is tedious, deleting the rest of a long email word by word is an idiotic task.
if it's no big deal for you, how do you - for example - add a phone number (that's been emailed to you) to your contacts?
and have you found a way of inserting an address into google maps without memorizing it or writing it on a piece of paper? in foreign countries the streetnames are often not easy to memorize, and it is 2008, why should I have to memorize addresses that have been mailed to me?
for a device as modern and expensive as the iphone this is pretty pathetic.
i am sure apple will come up with this, hopefully sooner rather than later, but i don't give d**** about where the google bar is, or whether the appstore looks nicer, i need to stop carrying pen and paper in order to make use of the iphone.
I bought my device a few weeks ago, confident that this would be implemented in OS2.1...
