After a six months wait, the Apple iPhone
is now available. The iPhone
has probably had one of the biggest launches from a PR perspective of any consumer device.
Being in the UK, we have not yet been able to see the iPhone
in person as we have to wait until the end of this year for the UK launch. Not a bad thing I guess as hopefully a couple of software problems that may get identified will be ironed out. The big issue so far seems to be the lack of multiple email deletion. This is a problem when you use a POP3 email account and receive lots of Spam. I currently use a Blackberry Pearl
and this also causes me a problem.
Anyway, with such a powerful machine acting as a phone, combined with a real slick user interface I am guessing that it is only a matter of time before some GTD
application is launched specifically for the iPhone.
have initially locked down the OS on the iPhone
so that developers cannot develop third party applications that install to the iPhone
. Now this was not what the development community were wanting to hear but it does probably make sense as it does not open the iPhone up to problems with Viruses and other forms of Malware that such a prolific release as this is bound to attract.
stated that the way you write applications for the iPhone
is through Safari
, the built in and also the Apple
flagship web browser. So, as for as GTD
applications go,I am sure somebody is going to release a web based application geared especially towards the iPhone
, and I for one, and eagerly awaiting being able to get an iPhone
in the UK, and also to be able to use it to run my GTD
As I stated earlier, I currently use the Blackberry Pearl. I have bought and installed Next Action from S4BB
Limited. Full context support and syncs famously with my current GTD solution on my Mac which utilizes Microsoft Entourage.
I will keep my eyes and ears trained looking for the GTD and iPhone news and report on it as it happens.
