I remember my very first phone. It was a Seimens that only had a small window for a screen and squishy translucent keypads. I was probably 16 then. Previously I had to share an old phone with my mom and it was so BIG that it made it hard to hide when I brought it to school. 😛
Then came the Nokia 3310. Back in the day, (haha, I make it sound like I’m so old) it was one of the best phones to use. Not only could it compose melodies, (which was a big thing then) it was one tough cookie. I dropped it countless of times, and yet it still worked! (hard to say about some phones now) Sadly, it got stolen. 🙁
I’ve been lemming for a Blackberry. I used to think it was bulky and weird looking, but ever since trying one out, it actually fits snugly in my palm. Plus, I’ve gotten used to typing on a QWERTY keypad (on the iPhone) and think it’s much easier to type. I’m a sms-oholic. 😛
I saw the contents and it’s mind boggling! Though, not to worry as long as I have the manual in hand. I never really got a chance to test out the usability function of the thing, but it’s got me sold. I want one now! I’m still deciding between the Blackberry Curve or the Blackberry Bold. I don’t really like touch screen, so the Storm is out.
The Bold’s keypads are a little small, but it shouldn’t be a problem cos I have small fingers. 😀 The Curve has what claims to be the most comfortable keypad, with its raised ridges. The Bold only has a 2mp camera whereas the Curve has a 3.15mp camera (but will it make a difference?)
The Bold has 3G, the Curve doesn’t. I guess it will only matter if I will be using it or not. Plus, I probably need to change my service provider if I do want to use the 3G function.
On a slightly different note, I’ve come across the China made version of the Blackberry which is named Blueberry. Makes you wonder what’s next – Raspberry?
