Ok, I'm not a cell phone type dude, so cells are out of the question. But I am looking for something along the lines of an IPod. (I don't want an IPod) I don't have nor ever want anything Apple. To many restrictions...well anyway. What I was thinking of was an Adroid "IPod" type thing with at least 3G and a front and back facing cam. Anybody know of and/or used a reliable little gadget like that?

The new iPad with this stylus is a pretty sweet browsing/gaming/other-apps experience.

I agree about the Apple philosophy being off-putting (it ebbs and flows, but it has been bad for a while now). No other platform is as good for consumers who don't care about those things that we find off-putting, however.

Or stick with laptop-type devices. Everything else is a waste of time/fad IMO.

Nobody "needs" a new gadget. Put your money away for a rainy day. The desire for a new thing that as of yet is undefined is an excellent example of the kind of "makes me feel good (for a second)" rampant consumerism that put our shiny Country in such a state of disrepair.

I consider it a major win when I can go the entire week and buy nothing but food.

Theres something called a Zune HD. Its like an Ipod but it doesnt play web video from youtube.. But its half the price.

You can still get the same hulu and netflix apps though.

So you basically want all the features of a modern cell phone except calls? Just get a phone.

OP in all honesty, those phones are junk, they break, and a week later they come out with "a better one"

"cmon buy this new one, its better than the last one"


RUBBISH.


buy a normal good dependable cell phone, for the purpose you are buying it.


to make calls.



dial in the number, and talk over the phone to a person.




you don't need to pay 300$ to have a cheap weak computer in your phone.

its a scam.



just buy a normal generic dependable cell phone.


peace and good luck.

THIS.



if you buy an expensive phone, you wont feel a sense of happiness, you will most likely feel regret, and then you will want another expensive thing you don't actually want or need.

i don't want something because others want it and have it, i want it because I WANT IT, or NEED it.


don't give these power hungry companies more money, they will take it and come out with a new phone the second you buy it.


its not worth it OP, buy a normal cell phone.


Peace.

You guys make me laugh! Thanks for the chuckles. It won't make you happier... he sais. I know it won't just want to pass the time when there's nothing better to do.
Some of you, I'm sure didn't even read the OP. Common...let's have a little co-op here people

But eventually at least one person got it.

Reject technology!!!

You would like a new gadget to while away some free time, yes?

Get a fleshlight, hours(or minutes) of fun, just don't tell the other half



Seriously though, what about a little 7" tablet. Creative and Archos do some pretty sweet ones at decent prices.


Peace

Hahaha s&f just for fellow ownership, and having the stones to say so. Had to give it up though, imagine getting caught using it


Back on topic though, the Samsung galaxy note might fit the bill, although it runs an older version of Android(2.3) and is in fact a glorified, giant phone.


Peace
