Mr S got this hp (over here they just call it 'mobile') for me for the usual reason - because HE wants to have it.
Mr S is a little unusual in that sense - whatever HE wants to have (usually a gadget or something digital like a camera, camcorder, laptop etc.) that is NOT really a necessity, if he has the extra money, he will purchase and give it to ME. Why? So that he will not feel any guilt over the purchase.
You see, a 'present' for me is always fair justification in his digital convoluted mind and he can enjoy all the gadgets if he terms or categorise them this way. Otherwise, he will just NOT enjoy having the gadget - no doubt because of his guilt at purchasing expensive stuff that is not really necessary.
But IT'S OK if it's a present for his wife, even though I don't really care to have the thing. He will be the first one happily scrutinising and 'godek-godek' as he calls it and I'll be the one looking on from the side with one raised eye-brow.
I was very happy with my nearly 2 year old Nokia N70. But now, he is using this (because his old Nokia is nearly dead anyway) and I am 'forced' to use this new one: A Sony Ericsson K800i, bought just for me so that I 'don't have to carry around my digital camera anymore' for I tend to do that for blogging purposes...
Hey, I'm a homemaker and a 'professional' blogger, remember? Heh heh..
Anyway, suffice to say, although I didn't like this phone in the beginning, due to the speaker that looks like an 'old radio' and the annoying 'joystick' plus the fact that Mr S forgot to transfer my MP3s from the previous phone to this one (irrelevant, I know), I have to say the 3.2Megapixel Cybershot camera (remember, this is Sony camera technology) of the phone is just great. You can see from the pics I took at Valentines Park and all the pictures henceforth.
And yes, I have been using the pics in my blog. And yes, the pics are good. And yes, it is damn convenient. So, yes. I now love my new phone and thank you, my darling Mr S, for getting this new phone for me!
If you're like me, busy with my kids and always finding the need to have a camera around to capture a moment in digital form but you can't be bothered to carry around your bulky camera all the time, well, I recommend this hp to you.
Next, Mr S is waiting for a phone that can take good digital pics AND better quality video (than the ones in the market plus MORE memory) so that Mr S doesn't have to carry around his camcorder everytime we go on trips - a reliable 3 in 1 phone, camera and camcorder.
Then, perhaps, I'm going to get another 'present' from Mr S.
