I don’t know about you but for me, even after so many years of covering phones and tablets, a new device feels like Christmas, whether it is one I receive for review, one I purchase for myself, or one I happen to help someone else unbox and setup.
Phone or tablet, regardless of make and model, platform or form factor, we all have our habits whenever we get a new gadget. My routine (whenever not doing a review) is: quick and dirty unboxing, fully charging it, go through the setup process, go through all of the elements in Settings and customizing according to my needs. So far so good. The first thing I do is setup my Exchange account which holds my e-mail, contacts and calendar. It is more important to me than checking for a (or even applying an already existent) software update and much more important than downloading apps (free or previously purchased).
How about you? What is the first thing you do when you get a new device? Some people immediately call or text someone, others quickly install Facebook or Twitter to update their statuses. Let us know in the comments below and read about what other people like you do out of the box!
