Since my retirement, I have decided to give myself something for my birthday. A month before the celebration day, I purchase something that I really like and wrap it up in a bright-color paper with a small tag that reads, “To: Omar, From: Omar”. Last year I gave myself a digital camera. This year, I included three items; all of them related to technology. Even though I’m aging at a pretty fast rate, I still love to play around with gadgets. I don’t believe that “old dogs can’t learn new tricks.” It isn’t true at all.
These are my three birthday technological presents. I plan to use them intensely starting today. Here we go.
A Chinese clone of the ubiquitous 3G Apple iPhone - 16 GB (Model A1241):
After unwrapping the cellphone, I found out it was a perfect clone of the Apple iPhone. On the back, in very small letters, is a legend that reads, “Designed by Apple” and the model number. Using this number I searched the Web and found it was the real thing. Since the box didn’t include a manual, I downloaded three Apple manuals in PDF format from the Internet:
- iPhone User Guide
- iPhone Finger Tip Guide
- iPhone 3 G Important Product Information Guide
Yesterday afternoon I charged the phone and today should start understanding how it works. I have a lot of reading to do, before I start making or taking calls. It’s such a cute darling. Let’s take a look at this stimulating gadget.
Some of the main features of this Chinese clone are:
- WiFi wireless Internet
- Imitating digital TV
- Bluetooth version 2.0
- Super large display screen size 2.8″ QVGA
- FM Radio
- Flat PDA screen & handwriting input
- Dual camera with flash
- Network frequency GSM850/GSM900/DCS1800/PCS1900/850
- Dual Sim Dual Standby
- Media MP3/MP4 video player
These are my new technological babies. Technology is moving so fast, it’s exciting to be alive in this new Millennium. It was a very rewarding Birthday. Thank you for the many encouraging messages received. Good Day.
