I have to admit that I’ve felt a bit like a fraud this week.

Here I am posting about the latest technologies in online communication and advances in mobile devices, while using a busted, old Nokia phone to stay in touch at the SXSW Interactive festival.

Well, no more. I experienced way too much iPhone envy while I was here and finally purchased one during a break from blogging yesterday.

I know today’s the last day of the Interactive festival and some of you may be thinking, “Why’d you wait until now?”

The answer? I don’t really know why I’ve waited this long. But I’m glad I waited until after yesterday’s breakdown in AT&T’s 3G service at the Interactive festival. More details about that ironic debacle on MacWorld.com.

At any rate, I’m the proud parent of a new, 3G iPhone and couldn’t be happier.
