I have a relationship with my phone. I’m on it all the time. So, the decision to get a new one comes with a lot of consternation, apprehension, trepidation, and downright fear. Because, making a wrong choice is just….well something that will make me miserable.
I currently own a Palm Pre. For the most part, I really like it. But, it has two deal breakers that I didn’t anticipate, a bad battery and no voice activation.
Who-da-thunk those two things would cause me to divorce my phone. But, it seems, they will.
Now, here’s the new suitor. It’s the HTC something-or-other from Sprint. Well, Sprint doesn’t make it; they just put their name on it.
The first questions I asked were about voice activation and battery life, and then the navigation. What kinds of cables and cords? What about bluetooth?
It operates as an internet hotspot, so I can get rid of my $60 a month Mifi and only carry this. It’s $30 (the hotspot part) a month. That’s good.
It has an eight megapixel camera and comes with an 8G card. If my math serves me correctly, I can take 1000 pictures before I download.
It’s got a bazillion apps, almost none of which I’ve ever heard of. I think it plows snow as well.
There was one question I forgot to ask. Can I make a call?
Can you hear me now?
