Mobile phone envy

Several years ago, we all wanted the hottest mobile phones available -- having the latest model made you instantly popular and cool. So you change models whenever you could and it didn't matter if the one you're using is still working fine.

Well, I've gotten older, wiser and more practical now. I've been using the same Motorola V3i for three years running and have promised myself to replace it only when it conks out.

It's quite sturdy though, as I don't know how many times I've dropped it and it's still working! Sometimes I wish it dies suddenly so I'll have an excuse to buy a new one. And WHY would I want a new one? I'm just fed up of it, that's all.

Being practical about purchases such as mobile phones, doesn't really spare me the gadget envy. Especially if there are so many cool models out at the moment.

Did you know that you can get awesome gadget reviews on YouTube? Just take a look at this one for the Nokia E75 (it's my dream phone of the moment). The other two videos are reviews for the LG KS 360 and the Nokia E71 -- yes, I'm lusting at phones with QWERTY pads. Tsk.

oh don't worry, i'm all for whatever makes anyone happy. hee! i have an iPod Touch, so i thought it'd be redundant to buy an iPhone, so i didn't -- but made me wanna buy some other model instead. hahaha

i just love motorola, but they're getting a little behind on their models. and which nokia shouldn't i buy? the E75 or the E71? or both??

Pick E71..I've always thought it's nice too.

However, as for me, I've had it with fancy, latest phones as mine in the past had always been stolen. The last time I lost a super nice phone was last year, and since then, I decided that I can live with a not-so-cool phone, like the 7210 supernova I'm using now. Well, so long as I can text and call, who cares what the model is?!

P.S. The Kobe thing wasn't financed by Ateneo, but by Nike. They just invited those lucky bastards to learn from the great man himself. I think they were also the ones taught by Kobe when he was here two years ago. He wanted to see their progress, so they called the same people.

hmmm... yeah, i did think a while back that i don't really need fancy specs on my phone that's why i've stuck to my motorola. but i just thought that since there's free wi-fi everywhere now, i'd want a phone i can surf with so i can tweet more efficiently. lolz!

oh jeez, about the kobe show i had no idea what i was talking about but that did make a lot of sense! XD
