New Phone = New Toy

As noted in my latest photolog entry, I recently purchased a new cell phone and service from Sprint PCS. It’s a cute little Sanyo 4900 and includes Sprint’s new “Vision” service that provides unlimited web and Internet access on the phone. I’m very impressed with the service so far. Granted the speed is nowhere close to my cable modem. Presumably it zips along about as fast as a dialup connection. It comes with a USB interface — too bad you can’t plug a keyboard into it! For an extra $350 you can buy Sierra Wireless’ AirCard 550 which lets you wirelessly connect your notebook computer or handheld device to the phone’s web and Internet connection. That would come in handy for road trips Michael and I want to take later this year.
