My latest, Microsoft driven, toy!
While on a recent business trip the fact that I did not yet have a smart phone really hit home. I could have used the internet, GPS, and other features on several occasions. I was at the mercy of my co-worker who was carrying one, and it helped me out immensely.
Face it, in today’s fast paced society you need all the tools at your disposal, and if you are not using them, you are likely falling behind. When I got back from my trip I was closer to the edge on acquiring a phone, but I wanted to wait until the next-generation of Windows phone were to be available, but last weekend my brother brought to my attention a deal I simply could not refuse!
Last weekend Telus had a 72 hour sale. I took advantage of this by acquiring the above pictured phone, the LG Optimus 7, which in my opinion is a great little phone. I was able to get the phone for free ($500 value), only had to commit to a 1-year contract, and they also waved the sign-up fee. While this phone may not be the best Windows phone on the market, it does everything I need it to do and more, and when my contract is up in a year who knows what type of phone will be available!
I am very excited about this phone. Firstly, it is my first real phone, and secondly it really opens up my gaming, social media, calendar, and internet options. Where before I was very dependent on my laptop, now I have access to nearly all my connections, sites, utilities, and documents on the go.
So with the coming of the WP7, you can expect more on my phone, and the especially the games and aps within on my blog. So stay tuned to the ‘Haunted House’ for some WP7 goodies!
