On Friday I mentioned that I was getting a new phone. I needed one in a BAAAAAD way. Why? Here’s what my old phone was:
Oh the hottness! It was also super slow to get onto the Internet and had no apps, which may sound ridiculous, but I need entertainment/a distraction from annoying coworkers during my coffee breaks.
So, after much thought and deliberation, I got myself the HTC Desire Z (Also called the G2 for you American folks with T-Mobile). It’s so purdy!
Let me tell you something: After using a non-smartphone for a bazillion years, this one was freaking HARD to figure out. Touch this, tap that, data, 3G WHAT? I’m pretty sure I’ll never figure it out completely, but oh well.
As far as apps go, I’ve already downloaded the manditory Angry Birds, Fruit Ninja and Foursqure. I’ve also got Words with Friends, which I haven’t tried out yet, and various other ones. My favourite pre-loaded app? Soundhound! Never again will I wonder for days what a song on the radio is.
Ah, how glorious the world of smartphones is!
Do you have a smartphone? What kind? Any app recommendations?
*Also, the opinions about the HTC Desire Z and any apps are my own. I was not asked to review them in anyway.

I used to have an HTC phone, but that was before apps were popular apparently, because the app store had nothing useful. I was just thankful to have unlimited internet. Now that I’ve moved on to an iPhone, I don’t know how I ever lived without one! Plants vs. Zombies and Cut the Rope are both good games if you can find them.
When you decide to play Words With Friends, I’m on there as Craving Cupcakes.
Enjoy the new phone!
I really need to get a new phone as well, mine’s stuck on silent mode, won’t ring anymore, and I can no longer download picture messages or send anything over 130 characters! I really need to get a touchscreen phone to help with my hand situation, but I’m totally with you on being the new kid on the technology block :-)
Haha Eric used to have the Bell double-flip. It sucked!
I have a blackberry but I REALLY want a droid or iPhone. Can’t afford that for awhile though! My contract doesn’t expire till April 2012 either. Boo
