iWant a new phone September 12, 2007

Posted by Mike N. Cheese in Mac.

Along with the introduction of some new iPods, Apple dropped the price of the iPhone, which, of course, I covet. But just as I am trying to justify the $400 price tag (it will make me much more than $400 more productive, right?), what do I find in the rumor mill? The gPhone.

Dilemmas, dilemmas.

If you get a gphone you might be forced to convert to a blogger blog–we couldn’t have that, now could we? And two posts in one day–is it true what they say about the blue vision?

I’m not that crazy. My last post was yesterday. Blue vision???

I have been on the hunt for a coon’s age, looking for the perfect phone. Here are some ideas.
First, the iPhone is crappy. It does not use 3G networks (the fastest type of data transmission), the screen is not easy for one-handed use (only old people hold the phone in one hand and type numbers with the other), and it is a first iteration so the bugs have not been worked out.
These are the three options that I have been considering.
Blackberry Curve for T Mobile (http://www.boygeniusreport.com/2007/08/13/t-mobile-launching-blackberry-curve-8320-on-september-24th/) Will include wifi. Ease of use and multimedia options make this a great option. Not GPS, but the iPhone doesn’t have that either. Best of all, it is a lot cheaper to have Blackberry service (which includes an internet browser) through T Mobile. The price was just dropped for all Blackberry service yesterday (http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2007/09/12/t-mobile-hits-bargain-basement-with-new-data-blackberry-plans/).
Another option is the HTC Juno, which will be coming to T Mobile soon as well. (http://www.engadgetmobile.com/2007/09/12/htc-juno-headed-to-t-mobile/)
The last option is the Blackberry Pearl 2, which will also be released by T Mobile with Wifi soon. (http://crackberry.com/first-looks-blackberry-pearl-2-8120-images)
T Mobile’s customer service and pricing are leagues ahead of AT&T. The biggest benefit of T Mobile’s wifi phones over AT&T’s wifi phones is the T Mobile @ Home program, where you can speak over wifi without using your plan minutes for an additional monthly fee.
Choose wisely.

it’s a good thing josh knows everything about everything. but doesn’t he know how cool the iphone looks? seriously. i think you should get it. but only if i can get something really cool, too.

i second stephanie needing something really cool. and while we’re at it, robby needs something and so do i. that’s the only way i think you can justify getting that phone. thanks mike, your the best! 🙂
