HTC Wildfire

I needed a new phone. I was actually looking at a "regular" phone, preferably a Sony Ericsson but then I noticed that this one cost about as much as a decent "regular" phone.
It only cost £198 and it has pretty much everything I can think of. GPS, mp3, internet browser, email, 5 megapixel camera, radio and more apps than anyone could ever need. I really am the kind of person that only need a phone that I can call and text with but now that I have all these features I'll probably spoil myself a bit. It has a lower resolution than most smartphone (but not a terrible one, doesnt look bad at all in my eyes) and a slower CPU (2D games play fine, 3D games don't) but I have to say it's worth every penny. I use it as a GPS in my car aswell as a radio when I'm working.

edit: I haven't bought a 3g connection for it yet but I'm thinking about it. I can still access the internet with it when I'm at home or some other place where I can access a WiFi hotspot.

Got the Argos catalogue from Summer 1993 for £3 off eBay, featuring such delights as a Mega Drive for £127, or a Mario Bros. Game & Watch for £15.

The designs on sleeping bags in 1993 were amazing, like something out of Saved By The Bell.

Full base set of TNA Icons Trading cards from the states, got them for a bargain £3, also had a cheeky punt on the Kevin Nash (Diesel, Big Daddy Cool, Big Sexy) Authentic Autograph card (1 of 25) and won it for a fiver posted with base set. So quite pleased about that, quite wanted a Hogan one, but they are selling for stupid money.
