Default Better than a BlackBerry + iPhone

Please Login to Remove!

I came across this phone yesterday and knew I had to own one.



Credit Card Sized Mobile Phone - Simvalley PICO RX-80 | Geeky Gadgets

YouTube - Simvalley RX-80 Pico

The best part? They're VERY cheap, $25 / 18. That's if you can get hold of one. I picked one up on Ebay.co.uk for 35 incl. delivery (girlfriend wasn't best pleased though).

Great for a backup phone, emergency/car phone, etc, or to use as a personal mobile while carrying your work BB.

How is this better than a BlackBerry or iPhone? Ok, it's possibly not, but this level of coolness deserves some attention.

You can change the battery though, unlike the iPhone.. Battery life is 100 hrs standby and 1 hr talk time, so again, probably better than the iPhone.

You were supposed to say "I've seen the new iPhone - it's the best ever"

I actually like the new HTC Android phone, the Hero. I not married to Apple, any hot, new device could win me over with the right features.

I can't warm up to Android at all - I'm trying...
And the latest Windows Mobile devices all suffer from the same problem. They use Windows Mobile. The 3G Dash is ergonomically nice - keys are little small - but WM 6.1 is still WM. And it doesn't have UMA (sigh).

As a reminder to all iPhone users - please upgrade to 3.0.1 so you can get the update to prevent the SMS problem. I upgraded mine as soon as I got home last night.
