Samsung Ultra Edition 13.8
This has been all over the techblogs, and I’m repeating it here because it’s just so hot. I need this phone. Okay, I don’t. But playing with my girlfriend’s new celly made me more than dissatisfied with my SLVR (form factor aside). I almost picked up a SE w810i (or dropped real money on the k790a) or the Sammy d900 carbon (pfft, links, bah, google them you want to know so bad), but have been holding out hope that the iphone/imobile is all I will want in a phone (form factor included). Though playing with the Blackberry Pearl was nice, even though I don’t need a smart phone. (This Sammy I linked has HSDPA, which I would get a data plan for ASAP, even though I wouldn’t get one for a smart phone.).
If the Applephone sucks, I can always get something else. (And Apple had better release another standalone iSight camera damnit! And iTV better not suck, with the new fee structure, Tivo doesn’t look like it’s going to be renewed, unless it only costs $3-5 more to install it on my Comcast cablebox).
