Handphone

The handphone business is booming, the number of handphone shop keep on
increasing in any shopping centre.About 25 years ago, handphones were very huge size, at that time not many people having handphone, those who had handphone were relatively rich.After 25 years of development, handphone becomes smaller and smaller. The function of handphone are enhanced, we can sms, e-mail, surf internet, take picture, play game. We can also take video, even pay bills from handphone.Handphone companies like Sony Ericsson, Nokia also keep on improving the design and function to meet the demand. Every month, we can see new model in the handphone shop.People sell old handphone and buy new handphone, You know the second-hand handphone dealers also make a big business.Especially the young one like to keep on upgrade handphone whenever there is a new model available in the market.
My friend has just bought a compact and lightweight phone, he starts enjoying the stereo sound.
Do you have more than one handphone?
Do you find handphone useful in your daily life?

hi,
i love mobile phones too and I change my phone at least once in 2 years (or 1.5 years) LOL however, i mostly use the mobile phone to receive/make calls and send sms only. once in a while, i use the bluetooth feature. am not really into the other technical issues of mobile phones though.

p.s: thanx for dropping by, and hope you feel free to take all the 5 awards too :)

It's funny, in Auastralia no one buys second hand phones, people like me with cluny old monochromatic phone often stop and look in envy at the plastic containers full of phones people have thrown away for recycling.
My phone came from last century- 1999, but serves me well, but in the near future I hope to be upgrading to the iPhone.

hi... you're right i guess 90% of the population here in the philippines got cell phones. It has been considered equally important as the basic needs of every household.Before handphones were used in the business... amazing that it has been utilized for personal use as well... to express daily emotions and concerns.

thanks! have a great day!

I have 450 minutes and unlimited minutes on the weekends, but I don't even use 50 minutes of that 450 minutes .. I guess I am not crazy about cellphones ha LOL

I have only 1 handphone and i change to a better one just about a year. I'd rather buy some other things than handphone which I think is only useful for voice communication and text messaging. I had to buy the one I'm using now because I love snapping pictures whenever I got picture that I like... sweet or even bad memories.

Yes, handphone is very useful in my life. Without it I won't go out of home.


Regards.

coolingstar9 said...

Faisal Admar,
Yes, handphone is very useful in your life. You use it for voice communication and text messaging. You love snapping pictures that record your sweet or bad memories in your life.

fwidman said...

I have a cellphone, yes. I like it about as much as I like the telephone in my house, which is not very much LOL
I use my cell to text message my girls when they, or I, are away from home, but that's about it:)

Pinay Jade said...

I used to be crazy about mobile phones too.When I was a teen, I wish, I dream about the latest of the latest. But now that I am a older and bit wiser I realized this is not important at all. So many people do not have a handphone in the rural areas in the Philippines, yet they are happy.

Very nice blog, Thanks for visiting my exploring asia blog.
I'm gonna put more infor about Palawan there soon.And if you want to there and have questions, just let me know.Cheers!

Hazel said...

handphone is useful, i think. i had 1 spare handphone..

bluecrystaldude said...

I love gadgets! lol.. But not that severe to enlist in the geeks category (no hard feeling geekian :)

I honestly can't live without my handphone. In fact, there is one pda and a sony errisson walkman handphone in my hand right now.

Once upon a time, I am very much keen with the idea of throwing my handphone to my friend. It was so big and heavy that I believe that my friend will lost his conscious in a second after I hit him. But now, handphones are so light and slim until I sometime forgot that I carry it in my pocket.

Oh, and I change my handphone annually. Blame it to my teenage hormone :)
