Of phones and Pasikat
It's really irritating to hear people bragging about their phones over and over again. What's the big deal, right? We pinoys tend to get insecure about the fancy gadgets our neighbors have and it's prevalent for us to acquire those just to be in the in-crowd; even mamang mamba-balut is brandishing a PSP while hawking his wares.
Going back to the topic, there are a lot of fancy phones over the market and each of them has an edge over their competition. The best thing for us to consider upon choosing a phone is its functionality. You don't have to use an iPhone if your work depends on your mobility, likewise you shouldn't buy a BlackBerry if your use is only delegated to downloading songs over to your phone. If you tend to be techie, and you can't afford the fancy phones, you can still find alternatives and maximize their functionality... Go for a PocketPC or WinMo device which could support both HSDPA and Wifi. And if you tend to be a music-lover, you can always get a Sony Walkman Phone or a Samsung, better yet, the LG Cookie which is the cheapest among the touch phones.
