My new mobile phone

Unlike any other phone I've ever used before, and in Japanese only. Which makes the most mundane of tasks an interesting challenge. This thing is great though, I have 12 channels of digital TV which is some approximation of a High Def format. The camera is 3.2 mega pixels making it perfect for grabbing quick shots when I don't have my S5200 with me.


It has everything you'd expect from a normal cellphone minus SMS messaging which just doesn't seem to exst in Japan. Instead their is an emal client which handles al of your text massaging needs.


The coolest feature has to be the built in GPS and mapping software which gives you more details than you can imagine when walking around built up areas. Increibly useful for a forlorn looking foreigner in Tenjin, the best tactic tends to be to had the phone over for a friendly local to examine before pointing me off in the right direction.


All in all, a sweet phone, and one which only cost me about £70 with a 12 month contract.
