7 days till August 7th!

And on August 7th I'll turn 31 years old. Imagine that. I'm still thrilled to become one year older, and I always look forward to my birthday. I honestly don't understand all the fuzz about the "30 year crisis" and all that. God knows I still feel like I'm in my early twenties, and age is just a number.

Apple iPhone 4Yesterday I got my first (and probably only) birthday present this year! A little too early, but I still have to wait a few weeks until I can actually play with it. Øyvind had ordered the new iPhone for me, so yesterday I got a mysterious e-mail confirming the order of a black 32GB iPhone 4! Personally I'm a kind of person who like to make up my own mind about things - I never like products or items just because it's something popular - so I haven't really been awed by my iPhone 3GS even though I can't imagine being without several of the available apps I have installed. With that said I'm absolutely and immensely pleased with his choice of birthday gift - and I hope I don't have to wait too long for it to arrive!

Just a few days ago I discovered the app iBooks, and that app alone is reason enough to own an iPhone in my opinion. Now I've got a wooden bookshelf on my phone, and it's all ready to be filled with wonderful books. I've already got "Winnie the Pooh" and "Dracula" in there, and I'll be adding a few more classics shortly. Genius!

For a few years now I've been wanting my next mobile to be a BlackBerry. I don't know why, I have just fallen in love with its look and the full miniature keyboard. Unfortunately it's hellish expensive, and is considered to be a business phone. When I moved to Trondheim I bought myself one of those mini PC's with the intention of having a smaller device to blog, surf the Internet and take notes when in school on and while away from home. I didn't like it, and thought maybe a BlackBerry would fill my needs instead. The iPhone has a nice touch keyboard, but I really don't like it when I'm typing larger portions of text - I always hit wrong keys, or even several ones. So yesterday I found the perfect little addition to my new iPhone 4 adventure: a tiny wireless bluetooth keyboard - and naturally I went straight ahead and ordered it. The price? $36 (about 220,- NOK with today's exchange rate) plus $3 (19,- NOK) for shipping to Norway. Grin

An update will naturally be added as soon as I get my shiny new gadgets, and I'll add a tiny "review" of the wireless bluetooth keyboard as well. It might just be crap, but I think it's worth a try!

  1. Jeg bor med to jenter som nettopp har brukt 500 pund på å kjøpe iphone 4.. Må si den er lekker , men herregud, jeg gidder bare ikke å bruke så mye på en tlf. Jeg selv har Blackberry, og selv om jeg sjeldent bruker apps på den, så er det en kjekk internett tlf med gps og mail jeg bruker stadig. gleder meg til å høre hva du syns om den nye tlf!
