You may probably ask why am I blogging about the latest iPhone 4 in my travel blog, well who doesn’t since Steve Jobs introduced the latest gadget phone? Here’s why, iPhone has a lot of applications about traveling, you can search for an address of a restaurant, when you get sick while you’re traveling you can search a doctor near you and call or email directly, or you can even have an application that can translate Tagalog to English. It’s a must to have.
IPhone 4 can be pre-ordered now and will start shipping on June 24, 2010 in the United States. iPhone 4 in the Philippines will partner with Globe Telecommunications and have a tentative release date in September.
I’m calling all the good Samaritans out there who are willing to donate an iPhone 4. Show me the love.
Here are some of the iPhone Applications that I find useful for traveling.
