New Toy - Dopod 810

On Sunday, I finally let go of my Sony Ericsson W800i which had been with me for near to 2 years. Did not go for the trade in option, as it really sucks. I got the phone for about SGD700+ then, its trade in worth now is 100 >.<

Dopod 810 - a PDA phone, along with a 2-years cooporate plan (really worth it), still playing around with it. Pretty happy with it so far, it has tonnes of cool features (even an in-built GPS!). Now I can have my Outlook calendar with me, and not trying to blast my head wondering when my next meeting is. :P

However, the purchase with the Green Star didn't really went too well. Firstly, the advertised promotion - Free Travel Kit, Home Theatre System and 1GB miniSD, is something like a hoax. All outlets do not have stock for 1GB miniSD and we will need to wait for 2 weeks - how dare they put it on the newspapers when they do not have stock! Secondly, the set that gave me has 1 CD missing. I call the customer support today and gave them a piece of my mind. I probably need to go down to collect again after they call back. DARN IT!

Samsung i600 is cool for office people and people who like to message a lot. Not that exp too, go for it!

However, if you drive and always wonder how to get to a place, get one with GPS. Very cool :D

Feedback: Dopod D810

A good all rounder phone. Whatever you throw at it, it manages somehow.

However, this phone is more like a jack of all trades but master of none. The battery life is okie but heavy applications may be loading slower than my liking.

Another thing to note is my phone package doesn't come with GPS software, you will need to install one on your own. And the GPS does take a while for it to retieve the coordinates.
