The only recollection I had using this Toshiba Satellite laptop was in October last year. I asked the daughter to leave this one and to bring my netbook instead. The swap happened because of the too many stories relating to this Toshiba.
Now, this laptop was forever a history. Stolen in the daughter’s boarding house last July 7th, including some of her personal thingies. It was gone! Breaking and forcibly unlocking the house’s room and the three cabinets inside. Daughter (she’s sharing the room with two other girls) is the one who lost the most valuables. Good thing, the digicam and her phone was on her tote that day.The other two lost their wallet and purses with the week’s allowance taken, too.
They reported the theft to the local police. But, who cares. It should never be brought back. Charged to experience. I tell the daughter. Enriching the thief with a laptop so dear to my college lass. Not of the price. Because, as we know, prices of gadgets devalue faster than changing slippers. Bought that Toshiba for P34k in 2008, as a gift for passing the UPCAT, for her graduation in high school and for entering UP. 3 in 1, as she say, then.
The Toshiba Satellite enjoyed by the “sisters” sometime in 2008…
Now a history…
Tada! The lad had won! He had chosen Nokia C5-03 over the X3. It’s still running on Symbian Os, I know. But hey, with the war of the budget smart phones, we couldn’t wait for the Finnish firm’s launching of cheaper units, preferably Android. Daydreams over.
Besides, we couldn’t afford the mass hyped iPhone 4 or even the Samsung Galaxy Tab Android 2.2 Froyo. We saw the price at the mall at around P23k, it is the 7″ tablet that has Smartphone capacity. Not our luck
Going back to the recent baby…the UNBOXING…
Two days of googling about cheaper smartphones, the lad had decided he’d go for this one because of its full touchscreen capability. You know how teens are going ga-ga over stuffs in this modern realm of evolving technologies.
Package comes with the basic inclusives; plus SIM card and a 2G microSD…
…plus a lot more features like usable GPRS, MP3, games, Wi-Fi, and a 5-megapixel single camera. (Click here for full specs and prices.)
That’s me trying out the camera at the Abenson store

The almost 14 year-old teenage son is allowed to have a new phone after his Samsung Champ broke down a week ago. He narrowed down his choices between those two, after realizing he can’t ever have the iPhone or even the Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1, the one with phone capability.
What could it be?

This month marks the first year of my blue/grey Nokia C3. Launched the Nokia model July 31 last year as one on the brands affordable smartphones.
Verdict after one year of usage?
The casing, although plasticky esp. on the rear, the LCD screen and the keypads were still smudge-free. Thanks to personal care, I guess, despite the many times it hit the cemented floor.
Battery still runs good despite wi-fi usage.
Wi-fi is okay as long as the connection in your area runs good.
Keypads were not too visible in low light. Wished the letter manuscripts should have been in striking color.
Wi-fi turns to 3G data, creating mountain high charges on my bill statement. Be sure to sign out all existing data browsing after using.
Beyond those limitations, IT’S A GOOD AFFORDABLE SMARTPHONE SPECIALLY WHEN YOU CANNOT AFFORD THE iPhone.
