Smartphones... anyone? (Part 1)

There are loads of smartphones in the market nowadays but most of them are still so pricey. Nevertheless, gone are the days when only tech geeks will splurge themselves with these "smart" gadgets. In fact, anyone can own a smartphone, as long as you have money and as long as you have made up up your mind to own one with the features & capabilities that suit you & your needs.

First of all, let's talk about smartphones' operating system (OS) because this determines how your smartphone will function. Currently, Symbian is the dominant OS. Some says choose Blackberry if receiving and pushing emails are your major concern. Don't forget there are Windows Mobile, Linux and Palm. If you choose a Symbian smartphone, look out for Nokia's 6110 Navigator, E-series, and N-series. Sony Ericsson tails with M600i, W950i, and P990i. If you choose Blackberry, look for this beauty: BlackBerry Curve 8830. ASUS smartphones run Windows Mobile OS; DOPOD smartphones run Windows Mobile & Microsoft Windows OS; same goes to O2 smartphones; HP smartphones run Microsoft Windows OS; most Motorola smartphones run Linux OS; PALM Treo, obviously, Palm OS.

Secondly, let's talk about its input method. Choose either one with QWERTY keyboard (mostly BlackBerry), stylus, traditional phone keypads or even touchscreens (e.g. HTC Touch).

Thirdly, let's discuss about it's presentation. Smartphones come in different brand, model, style, and look-n-feel. Choose one that suits your personality, one that you are comfortable with, and of course, one that you won't have to spend "years" trying to figure out how it works.

Finally, let's discuss about its features and capabilities. This is important. You don't want to spend too much on something that you don't really need. Think about what are the features or capabilities that you want your smartphone to have. Video performance? Digital camera? Battery life span? Connectivity?
