Is it a phone or computer?

I’ve recently purchased an iPhone.  Like most people who own one, I’m getting pretty addicted to it!  There is not much it can’t do, which possessed me to ask the question – is an iPhone even a phone anymore?

The smart phone industry has increased significantly in recent years.  Many hand-held devices now have the exact same capabilities as home computers.  You are able to play games on them, browse the internet, make calls, and even write documents.  Some people, like myself, use their smart phones more for their extra capabilities than actually keeping in contact with people.

One of the best things about the iPhone is the vast abundance of applications that are available to download. Many of these applications are free of charge, or require only a small fee to download.  I’ve been using the health apps on a regular basis since I got my device, and am actually starting to see the benefits.  Not only has my diet been a lot better, but I’ve started clocking how many calories I burn throughout the day!  This has helped me to lead a healthier and more active lifestyle.

Another element of the iPhone which I seem to use constantly is iTunes.  My music profile literally contains thousands of songs, and I haven’t even made a dent in the memory.  Gone are the days of the 32gb MP3 player, which only seemed to hold around twenty songs!  It baffles me how different technology is these days in comparison to what it was only a few years ago.
