Choosing new mobile phone

It’s time to replace my old Nokia E65. I like that phone. Regardless its problem with alarm. So, I made decision about platform easily – Android (IMHO it’s the most perspective platform for mobile devices). But to choose the phone wasn’t so simple. The potential variants were following: HTC Desire, HTC Wildfire, Samsung Galaxy 551 and Samsung I5800 Galaxy 3. But the winner even wasn’t in that list. It’s Motorola Defy. Why I chose it? Well, first of all I like its design and Gorilla Glass display with resolution 480×854. Also it has very good spec – 800MHz processor, 2 GB storage, 512 MB RAM, microSD slot (supports cards up to 32GB), 5MP camera. It run Android OS, v2.1 (Eclair), upgradable to v2.2. And finally, Motorola Defy is dust-proof, water-resistant (check the awesome video after below) and has very reasonable price – around €350.00. So, I’m going to buy it this weekend if it’ll be available in the Cyprus shops, of course.

Bluetooth handset Plantronics Discovery 925 can be a really good Christmas present for web workers. It’s stylish and elegant. The headset offers a hight quality voice and adaptive noise reduction. But the most interesting feature in my mind is ability to connect to the mobile and PC in the same time. So, you can make mobile or Skype call using one headset.

The handset Plantronics Discovery 925 is available in black, gold, cerise, royal blush and majectic purple colors. So, it’ll suit both men and women. Its price an expensive a bit – $149.95, but it’s good investments.

Perfect notebook for travellers

ACER   Aspire 1410

If I’d travel a lot I’d buy the ACER Aspire 1410 notebook. It looks like netbook and costs the same. But instead of Atom processor it’s equiped with stronger Intel Celeron. The rest spec includes 11.6-inch LCD display with 1366 x 768 resolution, GMA 4500MHD graphics, a 6-cell battery, 250 GB hard drive, and up to 4GB of RAM. The Acer Aspire 1410 offers a bunch of communication options – 802.11b/g/Draft-N Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, Gigabit Ethernet. Additionally it sports HDMI out (can be connected to the TV in hotel), integrated webcam (video chat with family, relatives and friends), 5-in-1 card reader and Dolby-optimized surround sound system with two built-in stereo speakers (have relax after meeting). It just misses optical drive but it isn’t so big deal I think.

The wight of the the Acer Aspire 1410 is just 1.35 kg, battery life is up to 6 hours and the price is €383. All of this makes that notebook the perfect choice for web workers who should travel a lot.
