My precioussssss...


Isn't it beautiful? It's my Verizon wireless XV6700 pocket PC. I am in looooove.

I haven't had a personal cell phone in many years. I have a company cell phone that I never use much, and if I needed to make a rare personal phone call I could always use that.

But I felt the need to get away from that. I needed my own phone. I want to be able to talk and text with my blogging buddies. I can't do that on my company phone.

Mrs. Fab, bless her heart, insisted I get a PDA. She knows how much time I spend online. Plus, when I transfer to the branch I will in all liklihood lose my internet access. I would have no way of keeping up with my email and comments. Well, now I do.

I have 1350 anytime minutes per month, unlimited text messaging, and unlimited internet surfing. This may be old hat for some of you, but not to me. Cell phones have come a long way since I last had one!

Check out the glorious details:

General Features:64 MB RAM/128 MB Flash Bluetooth Enabled Flash Camera (1.3M Pixel) w 8x digital zoomDisplay - 240x320 (65K Colors)E-mail and Internet Access QWERTY Keyboard Removable Memory Slot - MiniSDSpeakerphone 6.5 oz. 5.20H x 2.32W x 0.93D inches

MS Windows Mobile 5.0 Features:Microsoft Activesync Microsoft Media Player Microsoft Office Excel MobileMicrosoft Pocket Internet Explorer Microsoft Office Outlook MobileMicrosoft Office Word MobileMicrosoft Office Powerpoint Mobile

Network & Usage Features:1XEVDO (Broadband Internet)1XRTT WiFi Up to 300 Minutes Usage Time Up to 200 Hours Stand by Time

I plan to devote a significant chunk of time today learning the ins and outs of this beauty.

And I'll be sharing my number with those of you who need it.

I'm in heaven.

Ooooooooo, my husband would be jealous!! He really wants one of those PDA phones. If you want to see the peak of cellphone technology, come to Japan. My phone (its just a phone - no PDA *insert sad face here*)was really cheap and I can listen to mp3s, take pictures with a 3 megapixel camera and watch digital television on it. All phones here can surf the net etc now in Japan as the Japanese are crazy about their cellphones!! My particular phone isn't available in North America but its a combo company phone - made by AU which is a local Japanese carrier and Hitachi. Its uber cool. I love it. I understand your love for your new electronic baby. I take it everywhere.

Yikes, that's a beauty. Did you have to sell your soul and sign up for 8 years of Verizon?

Blogger Lynda said...

That is a pretty sharp piece of technology. I would love to have one if I didn't have internet access.

I could do without the phone though. Never have liked phones. Even though I have a cell phone.

Hey I think I will need that number, I also have verizon so we are "IN" woohoo. I have unlimited pix and text with my Razr phone too. Think of the fun we could have, think of how much time we could waste!! It boggles the mind.

Consider this though carefully, when I cant sleep I text random movie lines. Last week it was Napoleon Dynamite. "Vote for Pedro"

Just make sure no information is stored that you can be blackmailed for in the future. Sometimes that can be a real problem.

You made it yours by humping it shamelessly right in the wireless store, didn't you?
