Someone on Google+ shared with me this post about the Bachelor or Bachelorette Show and how it relates to mobile. And it's a brilliant analogy.
We shop, research, inquire about potential mates. And we pretty much do the same with our mobile devices. Android with its freedom better or the ease-of-use and coolness of Apple's iOS ecosystem? Or is the Blackberry your preference choice with the excellent messaging and
But unlike picking our significant others, smartphones have a 14 to 30 day return policy. So it got me wondering. Wouldn't the world better if we could return our partners/spouses if things don't work out within 30 days? I can see a slew of excuses:
- Sorry, I have to return him. It takes a while for him to wake up from his sleep mode.
- His/her battery life just doesn't last...if you get my drift.
- Let's just say I was unable to disable the excessive "notifications".
Anyway, picking the right mobile device is very important. You will have to "marry" to it for at about 2 years at a time.
So, what do you look for in a smartphone?
