My soon-to-be new Acquisition

My current mobile phone is... well I could not say crappy because it still works (except for the battery which need to be recharge almost daily and I call out only about once day!).

But as a techono minded person I do like to have new mobile phone, the newer one that can play MP3 and use it as ringtones, have digital camera for discreetly doing candid shot of cute foreigners :dd The one that I have been eyeing for several months is the new Sony Ericsson Walkman phone w800i.

It has enamel white body with metallic orange stripe along the side, 2MPixel CMOS camera , mp3 player with better grade earplug headphone sets with 512MB memory stick included in the pack. Sounds like a dream came true for audiophiles who wants their mobile phone to play mp3 as well :). I almost forgot to mention that the phone can be recharge when connected to computer via USB connector!!

My only problem with SE is that in all their preview and advertising image of the phone, the enamel white (which make the phone looks cheap overall) front and back looks more silvery metallic instead. I was completely shock when I saw the preview image from a mobile phone website that take pictures of the real phone. Like I mention above, the silvery body became enamel white and it did not look nice AT ALL!!!

Anyhow I am still considered this one since I am certain I would use it for all it worths :) However, currently the phone still selling at minimum 18,700 baht which is quite steep for my budget. I am not in a hurry though... And I heard that w550i will began selling in about two weeks. Hopefully, that should help bring the price of this one down a notch or two.

B18,700, that's quite steep even for me...... urgh... I am still using an old Nokia monochrome handphone..... but it is still working....

Now I feel like deliberating getting my phone spoil so that I can get a new phone!!!!!!!

Hehe I felt like doing that sometimes except that my phone is on the verge of breakdown... (just the outer shell though...)

I must say though that old Nokia phone is Very durable. I once drop it on a hard stone floor (at BTS station) and it fly into 4 pieces, front mask, the middle part, back mask, and battery. But once I pick up the pieces and assemble them it works as if nothing happen

That's true... I have dropped my Nokia phone countless times, but yet, it is still working....

Sometimes I just wanna throw it from the first floor, and maybe I can get the latest camera-phone in town....... aaahhhhh

Not in my case though... my mom said the phone will still be useful to other people (she bought it for me at first since I wasn't keen on having one, I remembered saying it's like having an invisible chain tide around me)
