My apologies, New
. I got to play with one for the first time today, though the demonstration was a bit limited in that it doesn't support the 1900 frequency.
a frickin' brick. And the P800 is bigger
I just want a new version of the 8290 that has Bluetooth.
Oh, and I like this theory on why 3G may just succeed, from an article at <a href="http://www.fortune.com/ontech/20020923.html
[quote]Based on the indifferent response in Japan, 3G video phones appear to be a solution in search of a demand. When was the last time you looked at your mobile phone and thought, "Boy howdy! I'd sure like to pay a buck to watch a trailer for the new 'Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers' movie on this dinky 1-inch color screen"?
On the other hand, 3G mobile phones will revolutionize the phone-sex industry. The sex industry invariably is the first to recognize the commercial possibilities of new technologies -- the printing press, photography, VCRs, videocams, the Internet, and so on -- and videocam-equipped 3G phones are destined to be next in line. I anticipate a new meaning for "flash dialing." If you are alarmed by the way people drive while they are talking on their cellphones today, just wait until the 3G clothing-optional videophones arrive -- you ain't seen nothing yet.<hr></blockquote>
It does bring up an important issue for the new "2.5G" phones though: Will MMS services result in porn companies spamming phones with photos?
