New Gadget

I received a package from my brother this afternoon. My new handphone has finally arrived (yay!). I made my order early last week but it was out of stock. So I had to wait for a week. This Nokia N82 is not a new model. But I decided to get it because of its 5 megapixel camera and Xenon flash (can take better pictures indoors as compared to the LED flash). Moreover it has very good reviews on the internet.

My brother is a part-time dealer so I got it for quite a good price. *wide smile* He's really into handphones. It's like an obsession. He changes phones so frequently that every time I go back to Penang, he's using a different model. So it's good that he's doing this part-time to fund his expensive 'hobby'.

This is a belated V-day gift from hubby. He's been pestering me to change my old Nokia 3220. I've been using it for 4+ years already. The battery doesn't last for long. I need to charge it almost every day. I frequently got cut off in the middle of a conversation coz the battery suddenly died (although the indicator showed half full). So high time to get a replacement battery. He wants to get me a phone that can do video call (for that 1 or 2 times a year he's away from home :p). Moreover I've been complaining about its terrible camera.

After thinking for so long (don't want to waste money lah, old phone still working lah, don't know what model to get lah, etc), I finally decided to get a new phone. Better buy it before 'the boss' changes his mind. :D

This is one very good phone, cause I am a user of N82 myself. I pester my hubby to get me this particular type for my last year bday. hehe.... Most my blog pics and video are taken by my N82. Cause I don't like to carry extra camera around then kept forgetting where I put them.
