New Toy!

No, not the Lego Excavator I mentioned earlier in my Blog (that one’s on order, should be here next week!) – today I got my new phone!

I’ve been using the Palm Treo 750v for a while now, it’s a Windows Mobile based phone so was perfect as it would synchronise with Exchange and keep my contacts backed up there.

However after nearly 2 years, it was time for a change, and my Orange Contract was up for renewal (the 750v was a Vodafone supplied phone via a client’s contract which was subsequently upgraded to a BlackBerry, the second phone I normally carry) so after a bit of looking online the HTC Desire was what I wanted. Online, I was quoted £49.99 for the upgrade, but the website wanted me to change my plan, so I rang up only to be told my upgrade was free! Yay! Ok, another 18 month contract, but that appears to be par for the course these days, and I don’t vandalise my phones unlike some! Ordered on Thursday and Delivered today, so can’t get much better than that! I also took the precaution of ordering a Hard Shell Case for it from eBay, with a Screen Protector, which came in at the grand sum of £3.50!

So anyway, here it is, my latest toy:

The OS is brilliant, but Android 2.2 is supposed to be even better. As it stands, I have wifi, exchange sync, and lots of fun apps 🙂 FartDroid here I come!
