Robert Scoble, Microsoft Geek Blogger Extraordinaire, got his Audiovox SMT5600, and he can’t stop fondling and caressing it. I can’t say I blame him – I had the same reaction when I first got to hold this sweet new Smartphone (one that belonged to a coworker):
Do you remember when you got your first iPod? Did you fondle it? Come on, be honest, you did, didn’t you? It’s sensual.
I’ve held one, several times. I couldn’t put it down.
I visited the Apple stores and felt like I was cheating. It talks to me. Oh, wait, that’s just a podcast.
I’m digressing. My Audiovox phone just arrived. I have the same emotion. It’s seductive. It talks to me. And, it plays videos. MP3s. Photos.
Audiovox, you got me. This phone simply rocks.
I’m so jealous! I’m still waiting for a safe way to unlock this phone so I can use it on T-Mobile with cheap T-Zones GPRS ($4.99 unlimited). I use data far more than voice on my MPX200, so cheap GPRS is a big factor for me. Even though it’s not $80/month for unlimited GPRS from AT&T Wireless anymore (they dropped the price to $25/month, as long as you don’t use the phone as a modem to connect any other device), it’s still more expensive than T-Mobile. Plus, I’d rather not deal with the customer service nightmare that is AT&T Wireless.
I can’t wait until www.c500-unlock.com gets a way to unleash this bad boy so I can use it!
Scoble, where did you get a 1GB MiniSD card? I was under the impression that 512 MB was the max size currently available (and there was even some speculation that the SMT5600 only supports up to 256 MB, because that’s what the documentation says). Let us know where we can get a hold of a 1GB card. Share!
