Phear teh ePhone™
Well, my mobile phone (that’s cell for you Americans) contract finally expired the other day so I was able to upgrade my phone and change carrier.
The good lady barbarella has been with THREE for a while now, using one of those nice LG phones – but, while I like the features that the THREE network offers (surfing, email etc) I’m not a fan of the clam-shell style phones that they usually offer.. and now days the ‘candy bar’ style phones suffer from ‘tiny screen’ syndrome which doesn’t appeal much to me. However after doing some research I came across a ‘phone’ that they offer on one of their capped plans that appealed to the inner geek in me: The Motorola A1000
After tinkering about with this phone, I’ve decided that calling it a phone is stupid – the thing is a PDA.. and it’s friggin awesome! It came with a heap of accessories: bluetooth headset, memory card, case, etc – but it’s the stuff I’ve been able to install on it that makes this thing really kick a home run!
A SEGA MegaDrive (Genesis) emulator lets me play any of the old classic games that i like, or I can watch movies/videos at fullscreen (landscape) or best of all I just discovered that the thing has night-vision! (read more for pic)
Bluetooth, Night-Vision… I’ve never felt so Paris Hilton in my life!!!
Seriously, don’t believe everything you read.
