Why I Want A Smartphone!
I have never been particularly bothered about technology before and having the “latest” phone. I just have a basic mobile – I think it has a few games on it but I don’t use it for anything other than texting & phoning! My boyfriend, Gary on the other hand is obsessed with the latest gadgets and has a monstrosity of a phone that doubles up as a computer, a sat nav and god knows what else!
But since I have started blogging and being active on Twitter I have felt a real need to have one of these phones! I get “itchy” when I’m away from the computer and can’t check what’s happening on Twitter or panic that I have new comments on my blog and won’t be able to reply to them for hours…! Am I getting obsessed lol?
So I have decided that once my contract is up in September I am going to get one of these phones, so I can keep up with the blogosphere on the go! Imagine if we went away camping for the weekend and I didn’t have any interent access…! Yikes!
I honestly have no idea what sort of phone I want – I don’t need anything particularly fancy, just a good basic phone that lets me have reliable internet. Oh, I think I would need one that actually has keys to press – as Gary’s one is touch screen and I find it soo hard to type texts etc!
So I am appealing to all you more experienced bloggers, who will no doubt have had one of these phones for years, to let me know what I should go for! What sort do you have and what are it’s good and bad points? I’m not technology-savvy at all so I neeed help – there are so many models out there I don’t know where to start! If I listen to the other half, he’ll convince me I need an iPhone 4, then somehow he’ll end up using it and giving me his cast off lol….
