Well, after a couple weeks with the Motorola V551 I realized it wasn’t for me. It was my first “flip-phone” and I just couldn’t get used to the new form factor. So I boxed it up and took it back to my local Cingular store.
The phone I walked out with is the kick-ass Nokia 6230. What an awesome phone! I actually planned on buying it when I got the Motorola V551, but they were out at the time. The 6230 is great. The buttons are small, but I have no problem with “fat-fingering” the wrong keys. Their response is great. If you’ve used a Nokia picking up the 6230 and using it is no different then anything else from them. Yes, the 6230 has a few new features that I haven’t had before in a cell phone. It’s got the digital camera, a digital movie camera, a FM radio, and best of all, BlueTooth.
I’m still not sure what all I can do with BlueTooth and my PowerBook, but I’ll figure it out when I have some free time.
