New Crackberry and a Blast from the Past


I recently was given (to use) the new Crackberry/Blackberry 8830 new world phone.  I loved my Crackberry 8703e, but this new phone is better in several ways.  I love the trackball, the slimmer form-factor, the removable media, and the ability (if needed) to tether it to my Mac for a mobile modem.  This phone will also work all over the world… although I don’t travel outside of the US all that frequently.  The keyboard is new and I am getting used to it – not sure if I like it better or not.  Verizon’s data network is DEFINITELY faster than the US Cellular network I was on.  I have been asked by several people – Am i going to get an iPhone?  NOPE.  I am definitely a Crack (berry) head!

And as a BLAST FROM THE PAST – US Cellular (Jen and I have our personal cell plan with them – we LOVE US Cellular) just offered for sale…


A BAG PHONE!  Remember those?  In the early nineties, while I was in college, I remember people walking and driving around with these 15 pound monsters.  US Cellular is offering it again as a solution for really remote areas.  Be Retro-chic – get this new bag phone!
