Moore’s law dictates that computing power doubles every 18 months. That couldn’t be more apparent with all the cellphones that has been coming out lately. We’ve come a long way since the “brick” came out, which doubles as a deadly weapon. Now cellphones doubles as a digital camera, a walkman, or a TV. Or as some of the newest 3rd Generation phones are; all of the above.
They still are beyond most of our financial reach, but it’s never too early to plan ahead which to buy. I’ve set my sights on either of Sony Ericsson’s future 3G phones namely the K800i and the W950i… or their next versions hehe
Both cellphones now pack memories several times more than their previous versions.
SE decided to have both with dedicated features, with the W950 solely for multimedia entertainment, and K800 for digital imaging as it is now integrated with (Sony)Cybershot technology with a resolution of 3.2 megapixels. The W950 on the other hand boasts a touchscreen and a 4gb flash memory!.. and a high end streaming quality.
What’s even more surprising is how everything is getting smaller. K800i will still have a card slot that would allow you to expand memory capacity and will support the new Memory Stick Micro™ (M2™), that as they say, has a future theoretical capacity of 32gb! That’s 4 gb short of my hard disk! I’m not sure if the W950 will remain unexpandable. If it does, I’m going for the k series, since I still could play music with that… and besides, a camera has proven to be an indispensable tool for my line of work.
Must save up now. I’m going to scratch the PSP off from my list.
