It’s good to be back. For a while I have been using a BlackBerry Bold 9700 to see if it could replace my Xperia Ray. The answer is a unanimous yes. So far it has been my music with better control and less volume steps than the Xperia Ray (with the XVolume Xposed module installed). Typing is far easier as I can actually hit the keys I intend to press more often than on the Ray. The extra width and near edge to edge keys are what make this possible. In fact, this entire post was created on the 9700. Only ones that can beat this are the 9000 (not enough RAM) and the 9900 (battery is too small). As for web browsing, Opera Mini covers that very well. Aside from a small bug with Google+, I have no issues. Email will have to be handled using either the Gmail mobile site or via the BIS and the Messages application. The calendar will be handled by the preinstalled calendar application and will be synchronized with Google Calendar using One Media Hub from Funambol Inc. Aside from those niggles and the odd stuck key, everything works well on the Bold 9700.

Sorry for not posting in so long. I had copious amounts of homework and studying to do. The blog post that I had been working on during that time has been put on hold due to writer’s block. I will it this week though and try the keep a proper schedule through the months to come.

November 18 is my birthday and in celebration of that, I ordered for my enjoyment a 4GB SanDisk Sansa Clip+. I just received it this afternoon at 1:50PM and I am truly enjoying it’s tiny size and huge sound quality. All that is needed now are either the Head-Direct RE0 or the Denon AH-D1001S and an amp of some sort (later on). I feel sorry for my wallet already.
