I’ve been very quickly learning over the past week just how truly amazing the new sub $200.00 Google Android based “Smart Phones” are. In particular the new Huawei IDEOS U8150 Android 2.2 Smartphone – which comes network unlocked from Dick Smith Electronics, for the dazzling sum of $179.00 — is an absolute bargain. In the space of a few hours I had this device fully networked with my office computer and my laptop. I have a lifelong interest in photography and was recently given a compact Digital SLR camera by an old friend which I plan to use together with my Android and my netbook to combine my life-long passion for writing with my passion for photography.
The flexibility provided by this powerful, cheap, flexible little device is unbelievable. It’s not really fair to call it a phone, nor even a smartphone. It is a miniature, and yet unmistakably powerful computer that also acts as a Personal Information Manager + Phone.
If you’re a dedicated gadget geek or a busy mum on the go or working on the move then this “Huawei IDEOS Android Smartphone” is an absolute must. 🙂
