WSJ: The Unused Cellphone App: ‘Calling’ - younger-gen using apps more than calling. So.... why not get an iPod Touch? for one, the touch is wifi-tethered; the smartphone has cell-connection. More coverage. Still... convergence...


I’m looking into getting a smart phone; probably the Verizon Droid, unless the Nexus One comes out for Verizon soon. Why Verizon? My wife is already in the network, so there’s half of my calls right there.


NO NEXUS ONE, instead, the Incredible - also includes 3G tethering, now....


UPDATE (Sept, 2011): I’ve now had the HTC Incredible on the Verizon network for over a year. I am quite happy with it. I got used to the lack of a keyboard pretty fast, although it’s a bummer I can’t use Emacs. My wife’s phone has a keyboard, and she hates it.


UPDATE: March 2015 - Got rid of the smartphone in 2013 whilst on a budget binge. Used a “feature phone” which is a dumb-phone with an even-dumber touch screen. No flash and I missed my flip-phone with the exception of the built-in, slide-out keyboard. That was nice. Nov 2014 and we got smartphones again. My wife has an iPhone 6 and I have an Android again. The HTC 6525 LVW?, which is a HTC - One (M8) 4G LTE Cell Phone with 32GB Memory.

Shitphone: a love story - the BLU Advance 4.0 Unlocked Dual Sim Phone. Which was $80, new.
