Is my iPhone really helping me?

Shock horror, I am starting to question the value of my iPhone…..
Actually… I am pondering whether the iPhone is the ideal social media tool I thought it was.
Don’t get me wrong, I love my little iPhone… but…
Should I should stop using it to follow blogs and twitter feeds?
This sounds crazy.   After all, the iPhone is perfect tool for both functions.
I can start up Google Reader while I am on the train; while sitting on an exercise bike at the gym; while waiting for a lift; in a taxi.   Its perfect for filling in time and staying productive. Twitter is just the same…. the iPhone is a perfect tool for reading content.

So whats the problem?

The problem is that while using the iPhone for this purpose I rarely interact, I never create content, I rarely contribute to content.  By this I mean I almost never comment on blogs and I hardly ever twitter.   This is quite simply because I hate using the keyboard.     More and more I leave both twitter and feed readers to when I have time to actually interact via a real keyboard.

So I am curious… does anyone else feel the same way?   Are there better devices out there for interaction?     Or is it just my fat fingers and slow brain getting in the way?
