Mobile, cellular and portable
I’ve never been one for phones with moving parts that flip or slide, and I’m fond of keypads so touch phones aren’t that appealing. At the moment, I have the Nokia 6300. I’m pretty happy with it, but when I got it as a graduation/Christmas present in 2007, I didn’t really want a new phone. I was already happy with my phone at the time – the Nokia 3200. The phone I had before that was the Nokia 3200; before that, the Nokia 3315; before that, the Nokia 5110. Heh. Someone likes Nokias.
From the 6300, I now want a switch. My current phone crush is the Nokia E63.
I’m not sure if I could afford it, though. I mean, I don’t have a job, so… hm.
The E63 has a QWERTY keyboard (keypad?) and is email compatible. Those are the only two features that I’m really looking for in a new phone, but the E63 is kind of an old model now…
Lately, the Nokia N97 has been catching my eye.
It looks and acts like a regular touch phone, but if you slide the top bit, it turns into a mini laptop! It looks pretty funky.
BUT! today I was looking through a copy of mX that someone left on the train and I came across an ad of the latest LG KS360.
It’s like an even funkier version of the N97!
Now I have a dilemma. I would still rather have a phone that doesn’t flip or slide, but I really, really like the N97 and the KS360. The E63 doesn’t slide, so it’s perfect, but the N97 and KS360 have bigger screens since the main keyboard/pad is on another part of the phone.
I don’t have any money anyway, so how on earth am I gonna buy any of them?
Update 07.09.09: I got the E63.
