Pure Euphoria

Said here, I'm gonna elaborate the euphoria I felt about this. Actually, Nokia made the announcement in early December. I saw Mike's entry about this but ignored it because I was having a tough time doing other stuff in RL. That's why my respond to it seemed late.

Like, I'm getting the joke at last. Lol.

After my Nokia N82 purchase, I doubt there'll be any other phones that can top it. The phone has everything I ever wanted. It's perfect. I know this will be the ultimate phone for me for a while yet.

Recently, I lamented that if ever there's a need to replace my current phone, I'll get the N82 again.

That was until I saw... this!

I've never been this excited about a gadget for years. I think this phone will suit my current wants (can't really say 'needs' now, can we?) best.

See, I've been eyeing this super cute netbook -- Lenovo's IdeaPad S Series. I have been missing my Tintin of late and am thinking of getting myself a notebook to replace it. It should be small and easy to carry. I don't need a super chunky one as I don't need it to do anything else other than for internet and writing. So this one works for me.

But now? Now, I can combine that 'want' with this phone and carry it around everywhere I go. Woot! One gadget less, eh?

What's not to like? I'm just going to list down what *I* like about it, you can check out the data sheet via Symbian-Guru here (PDF alert).

The 'Dual LED' flash gave me a bit of a pause (because N82 comes with Xenon flash y'all), but then again, it's not that I use flash photography a lot. I suppose I can live without it.

The phone will be released sometime middle of this year and the price we're looking at would be around 550 Euro. That'll be... what? RM2,600? *pengsan* However, cost effective-wise, if I'm giving up a netbook worth RM1,600 (more or less), I just need to cough up another 1k, no? That's reasonable.


Oh, I. Can't. Wait!! And I want the white colour one, pwetty please.



ehh... what about your bayswater??
