When was your last 'wow' moment in mobile? I think mine was the Kindle and finally realising what an amazing piece of kit it really is. Previous to that, it was probably the iPhone 4.
It takes a lot to impress me now.
The new Nokia megapixel camera because it redefines what a phone camera could do.
And before then..
The Galaxy Note because it packed so much in, particularly the pressure sensitive (wacom) pen system.
When I looked at the new iPad (3rd gen) screen compared to the iPad 2 screen.
Coming from windows mobile onto the Android platform......
From being so restrictive and requiring a stylus to work to being able to use fingers, having icons etc large enough to fit my finger press and then being able to set up my homepage the way I wanted to set it up rather than having it set for me with minimal changes allowed....
Opening the box of the Galaxy Note. The screen was a wow moment.
I ordered my blue 32GB S3 today, so hopefully I'll get a wow when it arrives.
Before that I was pretty impressed with the Prime, despite all the issues. Don't know that I really had a wow with it though.
Last big wow I remember was when I was given an iPod Touch. Amazing hardware for the time. Took me a few days to realise how hobbled it was by the software. It's what put me off Apple.
The introduction of the Palm Tungsten T. Screaming fast, nice screen, "Good" audio quality on a Palm device (for those days...quite bad these days) but no mp3 player app available. Very pocketable.
I'd have to say the last Wow! moments were the first time I used a WP7 device (for its interface design) and the iPhone 3G (which was so far ahead of the game at launch)... There have been devices that have impressed me, the Note and Prime particularly, but everything else has been an incremental step forward over what has gone before...
I was in a shop a while back and thought the screen of the Note was a picture, and then when I touched it I got a shock because it moved. That's obviously when I realized it was the actual screen and just how beautiful it was.
When I attached my Fiio E6 headphone amp with my Grado SR60's to my iPhone. That was a fall on the floor, can't believe this moment. I can't remember the last time I was so totally stunned and wowed by a device as I was the first time I heard what that tiny amp could do to improve the sound quality of my Grados.
