What’s the point of having a smartphone?
I was a Nokia Business Series user, as most of you already know. It’s an E63. Well, it’s more than enough to handle my assignments and workloads. Like a mini personal computer. The only thing Noey *my E63* doesn’t have is a 24/7 internet connection and messenger applications to connect with my loved ones. That’s why after contemplating again and again, I decided to buy a BlackBerry. I was hoping that this device would help me doing my daily things: final assignment, working, blogging, chatting, browsing, plurking.
There’s no such a perfect device, we all must say. I was disappointed when I discover that the “doc to go” application doesn’t work perfectly. I have to upgrade to the premium version to access some features. My BlackBerry doesn’t even have a pdf reader application. Sigh.
MY NOEY COULD DO IT SO WELL WITHOUT ANY KINDS OF UPGRADING! 😥
I was almost regretting my decision to buy this expensive device. Things got worse when my dad bought Nokia E7, the newest communicator from Nokia. Since I’ve been using Nokia since I was 12 years old, I envy my dad so much! Though I could never afford to buy that super cool Nokia E7. :p
It was my mom whom reminded me to accept the fate that I need an extra effort to make this device a ‘real’ smart phone. So I started installing things I need to make this device ‘smarter’. I installed wordpress for BlackBerry, dropbox for BlackBerry, linkedin for BlackBerry, Whatsapp, and Googlemaps.
But how would I read those journals I put in dropbox if I don’t have a pdf reader application installed in my phone??
Then all of a sudden, Edina gave me a sweet solution for my problem. Now, the “doc to go” application in my phone is no longer sucks. Now I have the premium version. (evilsmirk) I even installed the “pdf to go” application since I have the premium version of “doc to go”. Just now, I opened one of those journals and it worked! Super yay! Now my phone is totally smart. 🙂
Well, answering the question above: what’s the point of having a smartphone?
It’s like bringing a personal assistant, which could transform into a mini personal computer, which could entertain me, could take some photos, could show me which way to go when I get lost, to get information, and to connect with my loved ones.
Now that my BlackBerry is smart enough, I won’t ask for more. 🙂
