Patience is one of my strong points as you all know. Hey I’m trying to talk here, stop all the laughter and rolling on the floor. Seriously, I can’t hear myself type. :irked: Are you quite done yet? I’ll wait…
All under control now? Good. As I was saying I can be quite patient with things, usually right up to the point that I explode. I don’t let anger build up, it’s either there or it isn’t and there’s no middle ground. I’m not the sort to pace the floor waiting for something as I’d rather get on with doing other things. I throw myself into projects to take up time and forget about what I’m waiting for. It usually works right up until the night before I’ll be getting what I want, when I just can’t get it off my mind.
And so, when I was one of only fifty people worldwide to win a £600 phone (the Samsung i8910 HD) as part of the Ambassador’s program for that phone, I allowed myself a moment of quiet celebration and just got on with my life, saying that I’ll celebrate when the phone is actually in my hands.
That was the first of the month and we’re now approaching the end of the month. Since then, I’ve had people in my life (both online and offline) getting more and more irate that the phone hasn’t arrived yet. They’ve even started getting to me. Considering my problem with sunlight, I started thinking that the phone wouldn’t arrive before I was unable to show it off the way it deserves to be as I’d be spending most of the time in the house. As such, I mailed the company in charge of the promotion yesterday and was informed this morning that the phones should arrive from Korea in the next week or so and that they’ll be mailed immediately.
So yeah, my phone is on it’s way and when it arrives you can expect me to go in depth with it in ways others wont, detailing both the tech and everyday use experience of the device. A device that is currently the most technically advanced phone on the market (until the Sony Ericsson Idou, now known as the Satio, is released at the end of the year) with the most powerful operating system and some awesome software updates. A phone that I’d never be able to afford. A phone that I’ll be pushing to it’s limits.
