In my last post, I wrote about needing to replace my old SE Z600 with the iPhone. But the wait was too much. A friend lent me his HTC TYTN 2 for a while, and it was really nice of him. Except that the phone could do almost everything, but was low on battery power for its capabilities. It was a bit bulky too… and heavy. It’ll pull my pants down.
Relying totally on the slideout qwerty keyboard for messages was quite painful, even when I got used to it. Slow, I could not send text messages quickly enough before the traffic light changed colour… shame on you Microsoft.
So I gave in to Nokia. After much research, I found the perfect little phone, for my budget (while I still wait for the iPhone, say what you want..). It was the discontinued Nokia e51. It’s a dimunitive phone, with very plain looks. But under all that plain jane look, it’s amazing features and capabilities are great.
It’s got UMTS (HSDPA speeds)
160MB built in memory, and I got a 1GB card installed.
all for about RM1000.
Since I don’t play much music ( I like to work in a quiet ambience)
I don’t consume movies on the go
I don’t need a super camera (got a slr for that)
shrinking pocket space
That package was perfect.
I’ll post more later. Got to go for an appointment now.
