Phone no more

My SX66 PDA Phone has been a good gadget to have. Between the email, calendar, and Internet browsing capabilities, I have found it to be essential in many tough situations. Recently, some parts inside the phone have been rattling around. I know it’s not supposed to do that, but the thing still worked, so I didn’t complain. I then had problems keeping the phone on. It would randomly shut down, which should have been a hint that it was on its last leg…. well last night it finally took the bullet. The screen was unreadable and it was impossible to make/receive calls. What does this mean? It means time for a new gadget. I was all set on just getting a phone-phone, not another crazy all-in-one pda/phone. When I was at the store, I took a look at a couple phones and realized that I DID need to check my email on my phone, so I would be able to respond to emails without having to be on my laptop. That brought the number of possible phones down to a small handful, most of them being PDA/Phone combos. I settled on the Cingular 8125, a PDA/Phone that has almost all the same tools my previous phone had, but this also has a 1.3 Megapixel camera…. not bad. I’m test driving this gadget for the next 30 days, so we’ll see if it holds up to the hype.
