« Tea | Main | Blah, Long Day »


I've started to itch for new toys to play with. Part of this was prompted by the recent article in MIT's Technology Review about Social Machines. In particular I'm about due for a new phone. There are certain features I love about my current Ericsson T39m:

  • Nice and small
  • Tri-band GSM
  • Good battery life
  • Unlocked

My main reasons for thinking about a new phone stem from some problems I have:

  • Bluetooth on it is flaky (at least for me)
  • Screen is small
  • SMS system gets slow if more than 10 messages in the inbox

I've not looked at phones in a couple of years so I have no idea what is out there. My list of required features at this point:

  • Tri-band GSM
  • Bluetooth
  • SMS and GPRS
  • Unlocked
  • Support for iSync and Tungsten T2 would also be really good
  • Email would also be helpful

Then there are things that I don't care about as much:

  • I'm ambivalent about having a camera
  • Color is nice, but not required
  • Don't need games
  • I already have a PDA

If anyone has suggestions, let me know.
