Finally, I qualify for a phone upgrade and finally, after bugging my hub and hijacking his phone, I will get my own smartphone! I ordered Droid X. It's by Motorola and the review seems to be on extreme ends but overall it's positive. I like the way my hub's interface is prettier to look at (he has HTC Incredible, but incredible it's not) and I do like that iPhone has lots of pretty accessories but ultimately I went with Droid OS because I like Google, I mean, this blog is hosted on one.
So I thought about ordering it as soon as the midnight struck last night, but I was figured either way it will never come soon enough so after going back and forth between few phones I decided to order it from amazonwireless.com. I was going to order it through Costco.com, but apparently for some unknown reason they won't tell me I did not qualify for the free hand-free set so I thought, "Well, forget that then, at least Amazon will give me free two day shipping and the price is the same."
So why do I after all these years do I need a smartphone now? Well, this year I have officially become a soccer mom and Boy will be attending school five days a week this coming school year and I really want to be organized and it seems like something that would help me (ha! probably not...). I also want a little edge in shopping, I would always want to know that I am getting the best price in everything and I purchase with awareness.
So here are some apps I would install to help me get organized, shop smartly, and be entertained:
For shopping. I can't stand it when I find out I did not get the best price.
Also for shopping but I would also have to know what other people's opinion on the product.
For calculating, of course. What is 39cm in inches? How popular is the name "Colin"?
Kindle for Android or Nook App for Android haven't decided which yet
Overall brain exercise.
I beat the game already, but it's such a no-brainer game that can actually be entertaining for a long time.
Weather Forecast & Clock
I would want to know what the weather and time is.
Advanced Task Killer
I would want to kill the apps I'm not using.
