In today’s NY Times Circuits, David Pogue reviews low end cell phones. It’s a pretty good overview of the most basic phones on the market. And, as always, it has Pogue’s witty tone. I like the Seussian opener:
Red phones, blue phones,
Cellphones, new phones!
Look at all the things they do:
This one has a camera, too.
One has built-in G.P.S.,
One plays Tetris, Clue and Chess.
Some play films while making calls,
Some find studs inside the walls,
Some do e-mail, some play jazz,
I’m not sure what stuff mine has.
Soon they’ll be so slick and small,
Cellphones won’t make calls at all!
