Yesterday, I finally did something I'd been thinking about for a while - I got myself a smartphone.
I've been drooling over other people's iPhones, but since my own iPod is still pretty good (although I've now filled up 8GB and I should rinse out the excess stuff) I don't really need a phone to put music on. And let's face it, no matter how much I want it, I don't really need an iPhone. And I can't afford it either, for that matter.
Anyway, so far I haven't got a smartphone, because mostly the amount I'd have to pay per month was a bit high when it included the phone, internet, calling and texting. Now, however, the deals for internet are getting much better, so I decided to go for it. One company had an offer for the HTC Legend + internet for 18€ a month (calls and texting not included, obviously), where the phone itself is normally 16€ a month, and internet (the fastest speed they offer) by itself would be around 14€ a month. So, a pretty good deal, I think.
Now, of course, I know what will happen. I will get absolutely addicted to my new phone, and to having internet with me everywhere. I won't be able to manage without it anymore. Yesterday, when, I have to admit, I spent several hours trying out all the things my new toy could do, I found several things which would have been terribly useful when I was living in London. I managed fine without them, of course, but that's all in the past now - the next time I find myself without my phone, I'll be close to handicapped.
What a smart move this was, right? (pun not intended)
