As probably everybody knows by now, Apple announced the iPhone 5 yesterday, with the first units available later this month. I’m sure millions of you have already read it, though that can’t quite be right because this blog doesn’t have millions of readers.
Not yet, anyways.
Though the timing was somewhat coincidental, I ordered a new phone yesterday.
It was not an iPhone 5.
But, I’d still like to tell you about it.
I ordered the phone through my job. For a long time, my employer would only provide phones to a select few and would only reimburse you for your phone if you could prove beyond a shadow of a doubt that you were paying extra money to use the phone for work purposes. As most of the calling I do is from my desk phone, I never even bothered to investigate.
