blackberry tour - WATERLOO REPRESENT
... well, it's actually my company phone. i'd rather get a 'droid phone as well, but my BB is completely paid for.
good things about BB: BBM, nice keyboard. after using a BB keyboard, i never want to go back to touch screen again
bad things about BB: crappy app store, doesn't look very sleek
HTC Desire, will get whatever Phone 7 phone has a slide out physical keypad.
Posting from my brand new Droid Incredible... I'm in love xD
blackberry curve 8350.
I'll never ever understand people who buy BB pearl. such poor design. it just shouldn't exist.
had an iphone for a while. i absolutely hated it.
oh, nokia twist is the cutest shit ever. square. small. and has a little hole thing that shines when you receive texts or phone calls; what more could you ask for? (actually an entire list....but whatevs')
it's also pretty durable apparently.
I do, but as a nerd I don't particularly like convergence or things that have trendy but mostly arbitrary features (3G internet would be sorta nice if I could justify the data plan, but I don't need a camera, a touch screen, accelerometers or hundreds of apps; just texts, a phone and a contact list). I prefer many devices that do one or two things exceptionally well, than one device that does many things mediocre.
... but then you'd have to carry a crapload of stuff with you.
instead, you can have a GPS, a camera, access to email/sites, phone, games, texting, calendar, flashlight, etc all in the palm of your hand. the ultimate swiss army knife.
one of the credit card companies is planning to introduce a chip that will let you pay with your phone.
i'm thinking in the near future, you'd only ever need to bring your phone with you when you go out. though you'd also be screwed if you ever lose it.
^ Chips like that already exist. I've seen guys at the arcades in Japan swiping their cell phones to inset tokens into the machine.
