Yes, I’m going to write a post about my Blackberry… It’s pink and I love it!!
I begged my sweetie to get one for me when we decided to upgrade my phone. He must love me because he even let me get a PINK one!
Here is why I love my Blackberry
1. It reminds me to do everything and anything!
I love that I can type in my schedule, to do lists, shopping lists, notes even upload photos all from my computer! When I worked full-time I fell in love with Microsoft Outlook because of a book called Take Back Your Life! Using Microsoft Outlook to Get Organized and Stay Organized. It is fantastic when your scrambling balancing tons of tasks and don’t feel like you know where to start! I can put all of my info into my computer at home, connect the Blackberry and Ta-Da! it’s all there!
I even e-mail myself information that I might need when I’m away. For example I e-mailed myself a recipe I read online because I only had a minute and had to run out the door to the store. When I got there I opened up the e-mail on my Blackberry and grabbed the ingredients that I needed! We’ve done this with directions too, very handy. (Blackberry also has a built in map application that works great!)
2. It has internet access!
This is a blessing and sometimes a curse. It’s so wonderful when you’re waiting at the doctors office and don’t want to touch those germ infested magazines! One of the main reasons that I’m finding the internet so useful is that I can check my blog subscriptions from anywhere. I use Bloglines to track my favorite blogs so that when I don’t have enough computer time I can see what’s going on out there. (I do remember to actually go directly to those blogs to comment and do some “fund clicks” for my fellow bloggers who make money off of their blogs) I especially love being able to go to a devotional website that I love Internet Cafe Devotionals. This way I can at least get a 5 minute devotional in even when I’m busy.
3. It takes great photos and videos
You’d be surprised how nice the photos come out from this little phone. I’ve been pretty happy with the quality so far. One trick I’ve learned is to use the camera to remember things. For example I was at Barnes and Noble the other day and saw a book that I thought I would like sometime and I didn’t have time to open up my “wish list” document on my BB and type in the info so I quickly (and discretely) took a photo of the book. Another example was when I’m at the fabric store I take photos of fabrics that I like so that I can remember later. I’ve read that some people take a photo of where they parked their car, a color of makeup you like, a picture of their luggage and it’s contents when your traveling in case it gets lost etc. There are lots of great ways to use your phone to remember things!
4. It’s pink
I never thought I’d be carrying a pink phone but there is one big reason I wanted a pink phone. Less chance of someone stealing it. At least that is my opinion. I’m probably completely wrong here! It’s girlie and I love it!
5. Oh yah, I can call people
It is a phone after all :)
Am I alone here, am I the only geek out here ??
