The 3G K618i

I've got a new phone and its the K618i. The primary reasons why I bought the phone are as follows (ordered from Highest priority to lowest where 1 is the highest priority):

1.) Its 3G
2.) Its a relatively cheaper 3G phone
3.) Its design looks like the Sony Ericson Walkman Phone
4.) It can play mp3/AAC/AAC+
5.) It has a 2MP camera (There are other phones with better camera, but its the least of my priority)

Top at my list is its 3G capability. The reason being, as a techy traveller, I like to bring my laptop a lot of times so that I can program and surf anywhere I choose may it be at the beach or at any coffee shop or restaurant. The phone can be used as a modem to my laptop so that I can surf the internet anywhere at 384KBPS with an internet cafe rate of just 10pesos/30mins. And this really works well for me.

Its also relatively cheaper with other 3G phones that caused 15K plus at malls. Well, I was able to buy a brand new cheaper k618i with 256MB M2 memory at e-bay for only 9,400pesos. Don't buy at malls, since k618i there has a rocketing price of 12500pesos. Of course, make sure that seller in ebay has tons of positive feedback, and zero negative feedback.

I also like the design cause it looks like a sleak Sony Ericson Walkman Phone. I bought the white one, and it really looks great. It looks better than other new released Sony Ericson handsets.

It can also play Music, and the sound quality is quite good.

Last but not the least, is it has a 2MP camera. It works fine with me taking pictures of my current activities. Its an average phone camera. Its not as good as the K800i, but its the least of my priority. I only need to take pictures for blogging, and I don't need dazzling photos for exibit.
