mmmmmmmmmm chocolate

So I am in no way a "TECH SAVY" kind of guy and I don't subscribe to Electronics Weekly so what can some people who know about cell phones tell me about the new chocolate.... besides the lame name what can you tell me about it... mp3? compatible with songs saved on I tunes... plug and play or software needed...

i dont own a chocolate or know anyone who does, but the way i see it is, only get it if you can commit. you know in a few months there will be something cooler coming out and you may be kicking your own ass because you want the new thing.

it seems cell phones are getting further and further away from being a phone. pretty soon you'll have to buy a mp3 player to make a call because all your cell phone is good for is games and music.

I've seen the "chocolate" advertised on verizon's site but honestly haven't looked at it at all

It's just another attempt by verizon to snake oil you out of more money. They make you pay for every little add on feature they have to their network. Getting cameras or mp3 players on phones is kind of a waste, if you want a good camera or mp3 player, buy one and don't try to do this 2 or 3 for 1 deal with your phone. The add ons are most likely going to be crap.

Depends on what you go with. I have t-mobile, and when I was in iraq I bought the HP iPAQ... it's a pocket PC, organizer, runs word, excel, MP3 (windows media player) I can view PDF's, use e-mail, and it's a cell phone. Never had a complaint about any of it (except that Gas doesn't like the resolution on the camera function). I've had it over a year now. No reason to upgrade, I like it.

It doesn't matter what you go with, if you get a product that is devoted to one thing it will always be better than a combo.

Yeah, but I can only carry so many accessories. Why have a PDA (which I used alot over there, and still do here) and a Cell phone, with an MP3 player,
when I can get it all in one? One toy to watch over, or three toys to drop, break, and crush...
