My favorite kind of shopping

If you are going to go shopping, at least make it cell phone shopping.

Shira wa considering thr Razr and the A630.

The Razr is tiny and shiny. The A630 has a clever keyboard.

But both phones weren't really that impressive. I think for now we'll just wait. I would hope the A630 would come in price enough to make it worthy.

As for me - I'm still very much enjoying my sidekick? Can you tell? ;-)

    I'm interested in the A630, too. I need to find a working demo and check it out. In the meantime, I'll stick with the Nokia 6680.

  2. About the only really good thing I can say about the A630 is that it really is small. The phone is small, even for one that doesn't have a built in thumb board.

    BUT, after using my sidekick it just pales in comparison. The keyboard seems really cheap, not much better than a calculator. And the software is nothing special - yeah, they might work, but it was all very un-impressive.

    If the price dropped significantly (say free?) I'd suggest Shira buy one so she can have speakerphone, bluetooth, a small footprint and a thumboard. But I certainly wouldn't pay good money for it.

    Keep in mind, that's after playing with it for 20 minutes at a T-mobile kiosk.
