I Got A Samsung Omnia!
Although my occupation as a web developer demands good technical skills, I am not a true gadget freak. I like to use software and hardware that I have become comfortable with and can count on day after day. This is especially true of cell phones. I use them only to make calls, treat them roughly, and will replace one only when it falls apart. However, being creatively driven, I do appreciate well designed technology.
My brother (and business partner) is a gadget nut, and convinced me that our business needs new cellphones. Not just cellphones, but state of the art smartphones with every technical innovation known to man. Well, he did a very good job of convincing me. I am now the proud owner of a spanking new Samsung Omnia!
The Samsung Omnia is such a work of art that I cannot simply treat it the way I normally treat a cellphone. I would never want to scratch its pristine surface. Its sleek lines command the loving care due a work of art. Also, I joked that I will need to attend a 2-year course at Samsung Academy to learn how to use all the features of this technical marvel.
I have already ordered a case for it. Not your typical thick vinyl carrier with a sturdy belt loop. That would never do for such pretty technology! I ordered a form-fitting designer "skin" that is practically weightless, perfectly color coordinated, and will allow the suave, sculptured lines of the Omnia to be accentuated. Great design can have a strange effect on us . . .
