I enter the world of Smartphones

So here we go, I've "prettied" up my blog a bit, found a cute template and did a bit of a lay out fix. Now, I ramble about things, nobody will ever read, but hey I'm getting out feelings, or something like that.

I have finally entered the rest of the world and have picked up a Blackberry Torch.  I love it!  I have no idea what the other phones are like, but I am in love.

Blackberry Torch
Now, my experience with cell phones is rather limited.  I picked up one in the late 90's and kept up with the current phones for several years.  I moved to a no service area and never got a new one.  So here I am, in 2011 just getting my first real cell phone in almost 10 years.  Let me just say, this thing is like getting a new toy!  All I've had is a crappy trackphone from the dollar store... really? Yeah, really.

The price of these things are insane, compared to my 20 buck a month hardly any minutes trackphone, it's like buying a new car.   We're just another broke family living pay check to pay check, but so far, it's worth the money.  I've been able to walk away from the computer to do some of the daily things I do.  Twitter, Facebook, IM's, I've even got a recipe book!  More money, yes, worth it? Hell yeah!   I can't imagine not having this thing though.  I am proud to say, I grabbed this thing running and kept on going.  It's not hard to use at all, sure I have questions, but that's what the interwebs are for!

I noticed a lot of Applications are made for Iphone or Android or the likes, so that's a bit of a let down.  The apstore is huge though, and a lot of things are listed as coming soon to blackberry or the like.  I'm sure it'll get there.  I'm still after another twitter ap, but for now what I have will do.  Sorry though, no Farmville. *giggle snort*
