Fuck it. All cell phones suck. All cell phones suck.
I have incredibly few needs from a cell phone. Fewer than most, actually. But because those needs don’t intersect well with those of most, I can’t find a phone that fills all those needs.
Here’s what I want:
- Elegant and minimalist, not looking like it was rippled from the control panel of a ship from Spaceballs.
- Bluetooth. This is non‐negotiable. It’s also what eliminates eighty percent of phones.
- A halfway‐decent user interface. Apparently this is hard. Why is this hard? Why can’t I get a screen, color or no, that can accomodate more than three lines of text? Why are the buttons on a phone designed to be as hard to press as possible? Why does it take ninety seconds to send a five‐word text message?
I swear this is all I need. Anyone have a phone like this?
Check out the Samsung D500, its small.. looks nice.. got blue tooth/infrared etc and its the only phone that claims to have pop3 that i’ve got working. You can drop it lots without scratching it too, handy when drunk.
If you have a Mac then the ideal phone for you is the Nokia 6600. It is a GSM phone, so that may be a problem if you are with a CDMA or TDMA network tho’.
It syncs with your Mac via bluetooth – you don’t need a .Mac account – and the screen is choice; great for games ;-)
