went to ITU asia 2002 HONGKONG
amazing korean phones. OMG, i had the chance tp play with video conferencing from KT and NTT FOMA!!! OMG OMG OMG!! (below: a samsung video conference cdma2000 1x W-CDMA 2Mbps phone)
i played with sanyo's OLED phone; NTT's 504iS series phones. it's soooooooooooooo freaking cool omg omg omg omg!! (below, the dual camera OLED working phone, this is a preproduction and functioning model. not a mock up!!)
and those to-be-lreased-in-hongkong phones
1. NEC N8
it's awesome, the size, the camera, the screen everything, i'm pretty impressed. to be released in january at HKD4500. (below is the working model of NEC N8, with camera, at 288x352, or is that the max resolution? dunno)
2. LG W8000
the camera, and all the stuff is even better than NEC N8 (to my surprise) the screen is a lot bigger, the phone is fatter but thinner.
can take VIDEOS!! with ok quality. screen size 2.35inch? 64000 TFD color 176x220!!!! OMG OMG!! plays mp3, too, cuz it has 32Mb built in memory!! to be released in janary at $4500
3. LG 7020
i'm not too impressed. to be released in 2 weeks at $3500
4. phones from samsung
not too impressed, new design, same old function
5. sony P800
go away!! i've seen this straight back in 2001 january.
now i understand why some of the guillos think that the showgirls're rude
cuz they don't speak english........ well.... not much.......... but just enough to let u know that it's a torture for them to communicate with u in english LOL
so i used my japanese, and MAN were they impressed, they showed me EVERYTHING. from display manu to camera funtion, from i-motion to i-shot, from i-appli to infrared, from stupid fishing game / tamagochi to wireless chess game. they took a pic of me and printed it out for me as a souveneir for free. so i spent an hr at NTT talking to a senior NTT employee, and a part-time guy who speaks a lil english and fluent japanese. that was so cool. i asked about stn that is commercially classified, e.g. 505i and why i-shot was so late and stuff, and they sorta answered me, which was cool
and again, at the sanyo counter, to request demonstation for the world's first OLED main display phone, u have to know japanese, cuz only the senior heads were allowed to touch the phone. why? thye told me that the phone worth more than HKD11000 which is the cost price ONLY. that's why they're not launching it until OLED costs go down. took tonnes of pics and videos. all the manus were in japanese, and the other reports (who didn't know japanese) was sooooo jealous LOL, cuz they didn't have the chance to touch it hehehehehe
at SK telecom, u need to know a lil korean (e.g. how to count in korean, how to say yes and no, how to say please and excuseme) u need to grab a pen to write chinese characters and easy english. u need to speak english slowly and with japanese grammer, u need to use japanese and mandarin whenever they dunno whadaheck is going on......ANYWAY i got to play with the world's only workable CDMA 2000 1x EV-DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG max 24Mbps!!!!! OMG OMG OMG OMG!! can't believe that korean phones are so cool these days.
1. N504iS and Lg-G8000 have the best TFT/TFD screens, highest resolution, best color (natural color, unlike samsung's over-satuated UFB screens) i have ever seen
2. OLED was cool. it was soooooooooooooooo freaking cool.
3. my new phone is either NEC N8 or LG-G8000 still picking. i have to find out more about the camera before maing the final choice
pictures to come. stay tuned
