I am currently on vacation for some needed R&R so I won't be able to update my blog that much. I'm in Hong Kong and I'm telling you, as a mobile phone blogger, I feel like I'm in paradise. Sure, Hong Kong may not be the first country to get the latest mobile phones like our friends over in Germany or Finland but they've got a VARIETY of phones and best of all--they're all unlocked!
Here, getting an unlocked mobile phone is the norm and going into contract is like suicide. If you walk along the streets of Mong Kok, I think around Argyle street, there's a street dedicated to electronics and most of the stores sell mobile phones. Being close to the mainland China, the sellers have the luxury of importing mobile phones and like I've mentioned, the mobile phone sellers here are offering a variety of mobile phones from Samsung (Anycall), Sony Ericsson, Motorola, Nokia, LG, etc--and they're cheap! The lowest price I've seen for a HTC Legend is around HKD 3980, and I think I'll score myself one so that I'm a phone away from completing my HTC Desire vs. HTC Legend vs. Nexus One vs. Xperia X10 comparison.
I'm off to Shenzhen on Friday to look for more mobile phone bargains. Hopefully, once I get my hands on a new mobile phone, I'll have a review up next week. Until then.
