Technological crushes

As the run up to Christmas gets more and more frenzied with the media and advertisers reminding you that family is the most important thing , (along with spending all of your hard earned money on meat and rum ) we now see an influx of cellular phone and gaming tech pick up as well.

Take the Blackberry Torch 9800

which retails for around R6000, has VGA Video recording (who on earth know’s why?!) no radio and was released August 2010. Cons aside the pro’s outweigh the camera misdemeanour‘s.

There’s the Nokia N8




Announced 2010 April but only picking up now in S.A , has V.G.A Video call (secondary camera). Gps with supported Ovi maps. Standby time of 400h on the 3G model and up to 50 hours music play. It also has usb on-the-go support, multi-touch input method and  can house up to 32GB memory. Did I forget to mention the large camera sensor with a 1200 ISO speed and 12MP Camera through Carl Zeiss optics and with a Xenon flash, capable too, of recording HD video.

And it supports flash…but, it still has the Symbian^3 o.s installed. That could be the only drawback on this phone. It might retail at the same price as the blackberry torch, but thats not carved in stone as its only released on a contract basis so far.

But yes, I saved the (supposed) best for last…

So the iPhone demand still exceeds supply

iPhone does not support flash, but that is for another blog post. Retails for roughly around R8000. (

Which one do you think is the best on this list?
