4 Ways My New Cell Kicks Ass!

4 Ways My New Cell Kicks Ass!

  1. it was free.  Rannie hooked me up as part of a blogger’s buzz marketing promotion from Matchstick.  Free!  Now that kicks ass!
  2. it has a built in 1.2M camera.  I know, everyone has one now… but did your phone take a video of Tiny Tom’s donuts at the Ex?  Mine did.
  3. all my other tech toys that are all metalic grey, but my new cell phone has a really slick and sophisticated pearlized cover that’s kind of pinky-beige.  It makes me feel all girly.
  4. it came with serious toys:
  • a blue-tooth headset that clips on my ear and makes me feel like a borg (yes, a girly-borg),
  • two sets of earphones (one white, one slate grey) that make it possible to listen to music (yes, it plays music too) and also have a phone conversation using the same earphones!
  • an extra 512M of memory so I can take over 800 photos, or over an hour of video, or… well, really, the possibilities are endless.
  • software that will let me blog, read PDFs, Word docs, and syncs w/ Outlook… so it essentially replaces the Palm that died on me 4 months ago. Okay, okay, it’s WAY more integrated than my palm was.
  • OH, and the plug has a piece of velcro permanently attached so the cables will never have to get tangled again.  They will get tangled, they just don’t have to.

I’ve only just started playing with the features, but the week at the cottage will give me plenty of time to dig into the blogging and web access features.   The manual says it’ll work as a wireless modem too… so perhaps internet on the island is now a possibility?

    I so want one of those Nokia 6682 because runs Google maps and Shozu 2.0 so well.

    I am very happy for you.

    Yeah, so I fully don’t like my Nokia 6682.  It has some neat features, but in all reality, I just want a phone and nothing more.  I guess to each their own.

    I do have to admit, that it took me a full 5 minutes to figure out how to make my first call.  Which is pretty bad for someone who worked in Telecom for 13 years.  And the ass-comments I have about Rogers don’t include the word “kicks”.  Give me a week and I’ll give you a full review (whether you want it or not).  I’ve only had it 48 hours. I’m still excited by the toys.

    Vasta – what do you like best & what do you lke least about it?

    I am one jealous luddite Lex!
    I think I speak on behalf of food stalkers everywhere when I say that there’s just not enough donut-production videos out there – nice work!

    Like best?  Well, um, bah.  Hard to say.  I just can’t handle a phone with too many features.  I need my phone for three things: phone, clock, and text messaging.  Anything else, and you’ve lost me.  Because of the overload of features, not only is the 6682 ridiculously slow, but it eats batteries as well.
