Two years ago, when I realized I had to jump into the smart phone craze, I didn’t automatically reach for an iPhone. Viktor did major research and ordered the newest Nokia on the market, the Nokia E71.
I didn’t care exactly what it was, I just needed something that could help me access email, get on Facebook, and allow me to tweet once in a while.
Oh! And most importantly, I needed something to help me with directions. I’m completely inept when it comes to finding true North, unless the Wasatch Mountains are guiding the way. Truly. It’s taken me some time to come to terms with the facts, but the evidence is indisputable:
I can’t find my way out of a paper bag.
Mysteriously, my phone got wet with ocean water. I don’t know how it happened.
Naturally, it didn’t work so hot after it was waterlogged.
The folks at Nokia are rock stars and sent me a new one, the upgraded Nokia E72, to replace my tried and true, and it’s just as great as the first. The navigation system gives me turn by turn voice navigation. I mean, I can pick out a random voice and have him or her guide me to the nearest diet Dr Pepper station.
Dude. That’s not half bad.
Are you a smart phone fan? Yes? I imagine almost everyone but my mom has one these days. No offense mom, I’m just happy you have a cell phone!
