Spanking New Phone!
It’s about damn time! XD
Gone are those humble Nokia 3310 days, for I’m now a happy new Sony Ericsson W810i user!
black + orange = yay!
It all started one day out of the blue. Mum asked if 600 bucks is enough for a new phone for me. Too lost on any hope that I would get myself a new phone anytime soon, I stood there trying to recall any phone prices I may have even glanced past during my recent mall visits. But to no avail, I had no idea.
I gave neither a ‘Yay! that’s more than enough’ or a ‘What? that could only get me another 3310′ reply, and spend the next few days scouring through phone websites and forums.
My dad already a proud owner of the K750i, I made a point to prioritise searches for Sony Ericsson made phones, particularly the Walkman series, for their superb camera and audio quality, design and kick-ass interface. So, I ended up with the W700 in my sights, costing about 600–650 bucks.
It was only last Saturday that we went to Saberkas and looked for the W700. Although cheap, elegant and packed also full of features, the W700 comes with only a 256MB stick instead of 512MB on the W810i, it’s 2MP camera lacks an autofocus, and it’s not as stylish as the W810, but wasn’t that picky on the latter.
In the end, dad decided to get the W810i for me, which was 200 bucks over the budget. But its-soou-damn-slick! XD
Thanks mum and dad, you guys are the greatest parents on earth. Not just merely for getting my a new phone of course. It’s for everything. I’ll promise i’ll be the best son on earth.
And so we headed home with me grinning to the edge of my ears and mum with her ‘better listen to us from now on’ reminders. XD Oh, and also with my sis all overflowing with envy and jealousy. *evil grin* Wuahaha!
Downsides though, no more half-hearted handling of handphones. Which meant no more sliding phones across the table or flipping them into the air. Ah, all the stunts I used to do with my 3310.. That brick phone could kill someone, you just have to aim and throw hard! XD
But what the hell, I’m better off with a walkman than a stunt phone!
We’ll let the photos speak shall we? Yes, I’m showing off. Who doesn’t with a SE Walkman phone anyway? XD
unlike the K750i, it’s well-spaced-out keypad makes SMSing a breeze
..and it has a sexy rear too XD
shine, baby shine!
it looks kinda big, but rest assured it’s pretty lightweight
Not forgetting my 3310, which has served me ever so
disappointingly–faithfully over the last 2 years. It’s now on it’s way to Central Jawa, Indonesia. As odd as that may sound, it’s because my mom gave it to my maid, who headed back to her country last Sunday. Here’s a pic of it: XD
