Sans iPhone for a week
~ 14 February 2008 ~
Yesterday I announced I was giving up iPhone for a week, returning to a less feature- and experience-rich phone to see what I miss out on. Today I’ve got the Sony Ericsson K750, one of eight phones I own (pictured second from the top above).
I’ll post a report sometime next week when it’s over. In the meantime, anyone know where I can get an iPhone patch — you know, one of those sticky things you put on your arm? I fear I’ll begin trembling soon.
In other news, Nokia and Sony Ericsson are releasing devices that appear to be targeting would-be iPhone buyers, the Nokia N96 and Sony Ericsson XPERIA X1. Early Android prototypes are beginning to surface, Texas Instruments is testing in-device phone projectors in its labs, Best Buy is among the most recent of U.S. retailers to release a mobile version of its site, and so on and so forth.
Is 2008 finally the year of mobile, specifically mobile media? (Better begin studying if so.)
15 Feb: For the next few days I’m switching to the Toshiba 903T, a handset that was sold primarily in Japan after its release in 2005.
18 Feb: Today I’m pocketing the Nokia 6680.
19 Feb: Back to the Sony Ericsson K750 today.
22 Feb: The debriefing.
