new itch...

Sigh. Am falling into the trap again. Am itchy to get myself a new phone. Main reason is to get one with a good built in camera so I can take random pics for blogging (I know I know its just an excuse). Hehe. So obviously I turn to Sony Ericsson and their Cyber-shot phones. Will never touch Nokia due to how much they suck. Love Motorola but sadly their camera feature will never be up to par. Have used Sony Ericsson before (the T630) but sold it soon after as I didn't like the interface much although it does look good.

Now I just gotta learn to live with it. Hehe. There are some really nice models coming out especially the K850i. Simply amazing. 5 Megapixels with image stabiliser and 40mb built in memory. On top of that you can use MicroSD memory cards. So no more memory sticks which are rather costly. Sadly its gonna be their flagship model and should cost around RM2000 plus. Way over my budget.

Have decided to settle on the K800i with a 3.2 Megapixel. Their ex flagship Cyber-shot phone if I am not mistaken. Price has drop to a reasonable level and it performs really well. Nothing but praises so far. Was actually thinking of the K770i which looks really good and also nice and slim but its more of their style series so certain features were left out to cut cost. Think its also pricier than the K800i by a few hundred at least plus won't be released for a month or so.

Now gotta work on selling my current phone (Motorola ROKR E2). Wish me luck! ;)

also, regarding ur k800, u can flash k810 firmware into ur phone to get its additional features..but u wont get the light-up effects as it is hardware matters..
