Fast 5: Yes, It’s That Bad

Fast 5

I posted a parody video by ONN about Fast 5, The new installment of the Fast and Furious series. And I have to say, They were right.

First off, I have no idea where this movie fits in the series’ timeline. As there are some dead characters that supposed to be dead but are alive and kicking in in this movie.

Also, the plot is so idiotic, I really am starting to believe that it was written by a 5 year old.

The Motorola Flipout

5 May 2011  3 Comments

I’ve been getting my hands on a lot of phones lately, especially that my phones have been with me for a while now. iPhone 4 9 months+, Nexus One 1 year+, and the Blackberry Curve coming close to 2 years now.

I really love my Blackberry Curve but I have been looking to replace it for a while now. I don’t love the my Blackberry because of the BBM and Blackberry centric services, No. I love it because of its build, battery life and most importantly the physical keyboard.

I’m not looking for any keyboard, I love the vertical keyboard design. there isn’t much that is competing in that space at the moment so when I saw the Flipout I had to give it a try.

Keeping in mind that the primary use of this phone will be messaging, tweeting, checking facebook status and the occasional calling, it didn’t need to have the latest hardware.

The phone itself is small, it has a low-res 320 x 240 2.8″ screen/ 600MHz Cortex-A8 CPU 512MB of RAM a 7.2 HSDPA connectivity and a 3MP camera.

The phone comes with the Eclair version of Android (v2.1). And with the widget option that the Android OS has, it makes it even more practical. I just have the widgets of my social networks on 2 of my home screens. also, the notification system of the Android OS is the best on any mobile platform.

With all of that, to bad that the Motorola Flipout won’t be my Blackberry replacement for one very important reason. It doesn’t read arabic text. that is a major factor for me. And with the announcement of the new Blackberry 9900 I might give RIM one more chance when they release their new phones.

The Motorola Flipout can be found online for 65KD including delivery. [Link]
