I’m not completely embarrassed to admit this, even though I know I just lost some major points! 🙁
I really haven’t given it a fair shot, despite being mesmerized with their commercials every time they come on … and my love of all things Google else-wise.
Just goes to show how much my life has changed over the years. Two years ago I would have been all over it. Have I evolved away from the ‘New Media” socialite that I once was? Lost my passion for digital communities? Is there nothing about that I don’t already get from my Twitter-Facebook usage? Maybe it’s really not all it’s hyped to be!?
Just another Soc/Net … to me.
I want to love it. I really do, but how?

I’ve converted! Yes, I know what many of you are thinking “You change your phone more often than you change your…” and its sorta true.
I’ve been a blackberry lover for many years now. The shiny of the iphone never really impressed me much. Sure I think its a cool phone and I love Apple equally as much as I love any other manufacturer, but when I attempted to convert with the iphone 3, what seems like ages ago, it just didn’t do it for me and running back to Rim I went.
Today I could totally see myself toting an iphone 4, though I’d probably feel the need to hold out for the 5, if there weren’t other desirable options (in my eyes).
So I’ve started a new relationship with an Android. A Samsung Infuse. It has it’s pros and cons as any device would, so here are my initial impressions:
It has a big, beautiful, brilliant display! But, I’m going to need a privacy screen soon cuss it’s so clear everyone is gonna see what I’m doing and although I have long fingers, it just might be a little too big. That’s not to say it doesn’t fit nicely in my phone pocket of my purse or the pocket of my jeans.
The 8mpx camera is sharp and it has a flash! One major reason I pitched the iphone3, and I’m not all that crazy about the iphone4 flash. It seems too warm if that makes sense. Now the infuse flash is white and bright and it nearly blinded me when I took a few self test shots!
the front camera is a plus, though I don’t know how often i’ll actually use it. I believe it’s only 1.5mpx, which is adequate, but lacking next to the iphone’s 3mpx.
Lets talk imput. When have you known to hear a chick complain about too many options? While its neat that I have so many on the infuse, I’m a little overwhelmed!! I think I have finally found some settings I can work with, but it will take me a while to adjust and tweak them just right.
I’m loving the apps and the fact that I can browse from the web and installs are sent right to my phone. I’m weary about widgets since I know they will work against me in my attempts to conserve battery juice, but they sure are cool.
Battery life is my one major concern with this phone, but even an iphone would have trouble staying juice in my hands. I love that I can swap the battery out and used to do so with my blackberry pearl.
So there you have it and all from the wordpress app! Forgive the typographical errors as I get used to this predictive text.
I’m off to play Angry Birds, which I haven’t yet decided is a pro or a con on this phone, but I will say it kept me up past my bedtime last night 🙂
More soon!! Leave me comments with your must have apps and Android tips please!!
