Following on from Ricky’s post about the launch of custom phone manufacturer, zzzPhone, I went along and spec’ed out my own custom handset.
7 megapixel camera. GPS. Dark red, double power battery. What an enlightening and exciting experience that was.
Alas, at just shy of $700 dollars I did balk.
But I’ve done my blogger duty to you, dear reader. I’ve just ordered one via the rather rickety zzzPhone ordering process. Dell, it ain’t. However it’s PayPal enabled which gave me a lot security.
Instead of the 700-dollar-mamma that I was going to order, I went ahead and bought the bog-standard 149 dollar one. I also paid for express delivery.
The arse? It’s used my PayPal address for the delivery address. Bit annoying that; since I’m in San Francisco at the moment and not London. Still, I got the confirmation email from them. I’ll keep you updated…
