Re: Tim’s Coffee on Friday

Was just testing an old Flickr blog update mechanism I set up a couple of years back. Still working. I took the picture with my new Blackberry device to replace the old, worn-out 8800.

Oh, it was a great device: lasted forever on a battery charge, and I must have dropped it a dozen times. But it was time to upgrade, and why not get something everyone is talking about. Sure the reviews are not all good (in fact, I had a hard time trying to find any really good reviews), but I wanted to see what all the fuss was about.

So far, the touchscreen just takes a bit of getting used to, and with the updated firmware, most of the software problems are minimized. The camera is really nice (3.2MP) and supports geotagging. Throw in a 4GB micro-SD card, and you can watch movies or take a billion pictures.

Hopefully I’ll be able to blog with some little snippets and images from wherever I am.
