ZDNet’s Zack Whittaker: My iPhone, the data hog.

Zack Whittaker of ZDNet on why he went back to his beloved Blackberry:

I’ll spare you the details, click the link above if you must, but this piece is so full of stupid I’m almost at a loss for words.

Zack explains that his Blackberry was failing him in Brusseles, and when he got back to the UK, he switched to an iPhone. He then goes on to tell us about the easy setup process, and his travels across the world. He mentions being warned that international roaming is expensive, by his new iPhone, and being the smart traveler he is, he’s not worried about that.
In the end he pays USD 230 for roaming, which makes him switch back to his trusted Blackberry.

He also adds the cost of the iPhone, his having to go home because he forgot his passport, and a new BB Bold to his total cost…
Why is beyond me.

I’m not sure what Zack is trying to tell us either to be honest. Is he implying that his iPhone cost him USD 1.950? Is he telling us his BB wouldn’t have had the same roaming fees, or the same data usage? Well, that would be silly to suggest. Data doesn’t differentiate between devices.
So what is it? It couldn’t be that Zack ignored the warnings, and is now tying to blame his iPhone in a link-bait article, right?
