Decisions Decisions

My phone is slowly wasting away. Every charge lasts shorter and shorter. Rather than wait for it to die, I think I’m going to preemptively replace it, like you would an old dog or grandmother.

It’s my 5th Chocolate (long story) so it makes sense to replace it with another. I don’t really care for flip phones, so the Chocolate 3 is out. I can get a Chocolate 2 for a good price.

Another option is this Juke. I fancy the idea of having a phone no one else has, and I’ve never met anyone with a Juke. I saw a girl in the hospital with one, but her father was dying so I thought it best not to ask her how she liked it. It doesn’t exactly look like a professional phone, but it is unique.

This Decoy has Bluetooth, which really does nothing for me. But there aren’t that many options for slide phones. I realize that most people don’t shop for phones according to whether they slide, but when you don’t text, have 2 iPods and don’t like taking pictures, the rest of the special features are moot points.

Any recommendations?

Personally I find the Jukes way too tiny. My friend Ali has one and both Grimshaws have them as well. But that's just my preference.

The Juke got really terrible reviews. I doubt that you're going to be listening to music while on rounds...wait, nm, I don't doubt that at all.
