Club Night

A close-up taken with the Nokia 6220c phone’s 5mp camera (with flash). Do I care what applications the iPhone 3g has, when the camera on it cannot approach that on the Nokia (at the moment)? I can guess that it will change, but such it the marketplace in mobile phone technology. And we users can only benefit.

Long live the Digital Revolution.

I prefer to use a camera, much better results than a camera on a phone.
So an iphone is ideal for me. Great apps, the wordpress one is amazing, twitter apps, email, voip, im, all the apps I use on a phone when away from a pc. Plus some pretty decent games as well.
But as you said everyone uses a phone differently. The camera side for me is less important than the app side.

...and when I'm in the back of beyond, I can't access the 3g network anyway, so many of the apps that you mention are of no use to me. When I get access to the 3g network, I'm in an urban environment, possibly near a computer.

After getting screwed by O2 over the iPhone mis-advertising, I looked at what I was using my mobile phone for, and went accordingly ... and then returned that one and got a similar phone from a different manufacturer.

Thanks for that, Chasrles. I have a few books on WW1 that I am reading just now, and even illustrations and photos from the time fail to convey the horror of the slaughter that these young men went through. I think that empathy must have a natural cut-off point, otherwise insanity would be contagious.

As photographic technoloogy was developing, there are a couple of useful sites I have accessed:
