I was shopping around for an MP3 player to use while playing poker at the casino, and was surprised to find them range in price from $40 to $500. I knew that I’d never need to fit the 20,000 songs that some of them can fit, and so was about to get one of the cheaper ones. But then, being the minimalist I am, I didn’t exactly want another device to carry around, so I decided to just upgrade my cell into an MP3 phone.
Now, my old (as of yesterday) phone was a Samsung x426 which served me well over the years. I never had any problems with it, but really all it could do was…. well… call people. I didn’t have a camera or anything on it, and while it did have Internet access, it took literally 10-15 minutes just to log-in and check your e-mail. So, coupled with the fact that I was seeking an MP3 player, a new phone felt in order.
I was planning on just getting a basic decent upgrade… but once I saw the Blackberry Pearl I just had to get it. I mean.. it called out to me. It said “Pick me! Pick me!”… and I couldn’t just leave him there… that’d just be wrong.
Anyhow, here’s a video I took of it to show it off. All this technology is new to me so forgive me if I sound a bit excited. Oh, and if somebody (preferably a Blackberry Pearl owner) could please let me know about my e-mail question I ask in the video, It’d be very much appreciated.
