Mobile Phones

I’ve been getting desparate recently about my mobile phone, and I’m pretty sure that I am going to end up with a Samsung e720. I’m liking the look of it, the size and the fact that it is a clamshell (which I’ve never had before, so y’know, it’s good to try new things).

I’m slightly worried that it might not have a bluetooth data connection on it to get the pictures off, but I’m pretty sure that it will – the only thing I think it is missing is a modem data connection, but I don’t really use that anyway, so that’s not a problem.

The only thing that I think I would miss is the ability to put applications on to the handset, but I don’t think that’ll be a problem either – I’ll just have to learn to use J2ME instead of learning to use C++ on Symbian (that’s so that I can finish my damn “GrogBlog”), and seeing as I don’t use half the “smartphone” features on my 6600, it doesn’t really seem like it will bother me.

Incidentally, following a cue from one of the guys that I work with, I recently bought a £25 Nokia 1100 Pay as you Go, so that I can take it out clubbing with me, or other places where I wouldn’t mind losing/bashing/destroying it so much (yeah, a £25 loss would be annoying, but not as annoying as a several hundred pound loss for my “main” phone). As far as the handset goes, I haven’t used it at all yet, but essentially it’s a 3330/3410 repackaged into a smaller handset, so it does all the basic things really well (which is all I’m really going to need), and rather wonderfully it takes the same battery as my 6600 (so for the time being, I can swap and change batteries as and when I need). I’ll let you know how I get on with that one.
