Scored another 90% on the Progression Run. Honestly this is a lot better than I’ve expected it to be. I had thought with the cigarette breathing and all the stomach cramps I would have scored around 70-75%. Couldn’t complain, it’s pretty satisfying.
My aging BB9700 is falling apart. The temptation of upgrading is always lurking inside but I would rather upgrade my ongoing strong-built Nokia E71 to either Samsung Galaxy Note II or Nokia Lumia 920 (yes, I’m not a fan of iPhones..). The thing is, though it has the worst mobile operating system in existence, I’ve always regarded my Blackberry as my primary mobile device, whereas I consider other brands as secondary phones or entertainment phones. The text messaging experience offered by a qwerty Blackberry in terms of sms, email and chatting..or tweeting for that matter is superb. Even at home I spend more time messaging or emailing on my Blackberry than on my laptop. Even as this is written, I would rather blog from my BB than on my laptop.
The fact of the matter is, though the keyboard is starting to fall apart, the effectiveness of the phone itself is unquestionable, the rest of the phone still works like a charm. That’s why even though I’m very tempted to upgrade to a BB9900 Dakota, I think I would rather wait to what next year has in store for a qwerty Blackberry 10 device..
In the meanwhile, my E71 really needs to be upgraded, though the build quality of that thing is near perfection, the rest of the device is near to shit. Shit OS and shit hardware spec. I’m really mesmerized by the build quality and design of the Nokia Lumia series, and I’ve got to admit the new Windows Phone 8 platform is damn pleasing on the eyes as well. Even my dad loves it. It’s such a beautiful OS complemented by a terrific UI.. Once held, it’s not easy not to fall in love with a Lumia. But then again, the powerhouse inside a Galaxy Note II is astronomical and the features are unbeatable. It’s easy to get a designer like myself craving to own one.
Unfortunately I’m not a socialite designer, so iPhones don’t tempt me much. Yes it’s good-looking. But it looks the same as the old iPhone with the same damn features. Yes it’s bigger and faster. But that’s pretty much it. Nah, I’m not a fashion designer, glitters and lipsticks don’t interest me much.
