New Cell Phone

I realized that I haven't been very good on blogging over here lately. I've been spending a lot of time on re-working my music site Voices to hear and this blog has unfortunately gotten the short end of the stick.

What made me realize how lacking I've been in keeping everyone up to date on here was that I haven't mentioned the fact that I bought a Palm Pre. I've had it for awhile now and have never once mentioned it here.

I admit it, I'm a gadget freak. I can't help it. I know it wasn't that long ago I bought the Instinct and was blogging about it here. In fact I didn't think I would be able to get the Pre, because I figured that it was too soon to get the deal. But they let me get it for the renewal price and I went with it.

I liked the Instinct, but it seemed Sprint pretty much decided to ignore it after they built it up as the I Phone killer. No apps, no real support behind it.

Now along comes the Pre and a lot of the hype I heard about the Instinct is being parroted for the Pre. But one big difference I think, the Pre is Palm's last big hope and they have to support it if they want to survive as a company.

So how do I like it? I really do like it. Palm is still way behind in making apps for the phone, but there are now over a hundred homebrew apps out there. I've got an app that translates for me, will convert currency, a comic strip app and many more.

I'm hoping that this will be my phone for awhile. I like it so far and hopefully will continue to like it and use it and not want to get another one too soon.

I know, it's a sickness....I can't help wanting the newest gadget....
