Yep, that’s right. I turned 40 years old today. That’s the sad news. The good news is that for my forties I bought myself an US imported iPhone and unlocked it (iNdependance + AnySIM) to be able to use it with my belgian provider of choice, Proximus. Everything works perfectly but YouTube that Apple recently blocked for hacked iPhone.
I moved from my Nokia E61 to the iPhone overnight. What a great experience : I felt like upgrading from MS-DOS to MacOS X in one big step. The world will change now that the mobile Internet is a great thing and not a sub-par experience. You really enjoy browsing the web, reading online newspaper, checking email with HTML display, pictures and attachement and being able to answer on the go.
The iPhone is a big lesson given at a whole billion dollars industry that designing experiences is a very powerfull art.
