A B00MBanger About Touch Screen Mobile Devices

Touch technology has been lingering for a while, and it has been tipping the balance of the cell phone store.

I can't say touch screen phones are addicting, because, that wouldn't be correct, you know, when you think about it?

Anyways, a few great examples of touch screen phones -and I'm not saying these are great phones-, are
iPhone $399
Instinct $349
LG Vu $329
Palm $299

And take a look at the suggested retail prices (up to date), along with taxes and all that sh**.

The trigger here, is that


Touch screen is a feature you are adding, to ultimately anything electronic, for 2 times how much it is worth.

The T-mobile sidekick 3, with a MSRP of $149, has all the features of the LG Vu, and more, is more than half the price of it.

The Blackberry Bold, a smartphone a whole lot smarter than any Palm Phone itself, is only $199.

The Helio Ocean,
aah, wait, I'll have to go deeper into this.

Comparison Chart Below Silly
Helio Ocean Apple iPhone Samsung Instinct

3G Network,..........3G Network,...........2G Network,
2.4 Mbps.............500 Kbps..............200 Kbps

2 Keyboards,.........Touch-Screen..........Touch-Screen

E-mail- 10...........E-mail- 6.............E-mail- 3


My comparison chart is not yet finished. More research required.

Anyways, I hope you understand my point. Apple, you know, is all about style, and it was a matter of time they would come up with a cheap a*s, overpriced, touch-screen phone. The Samsung Instinct is going hard, I think they did get a few ideas from the iPhone, but most from their previous phones.

I have to say, Samsung is the desruction at making cell phones.

Anyways, I'm not telling you to stop with the touch-screenies, because
this probably won't blow the nicotine out of you. Just think twice before making your mind.

Please comment, and feel free to ask questions or rebut my points. I know you have a whole bunch of things that I'm not quite sure about.

Thanks a lot.

P.S. If you would like to split-chat with me, go ahead and call my Helio mobile device (notice I don't call it a phone)-
