Cell Phones for Foolanthropy



January 09, 2010 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: BB , AAPL , MSI

Admittedly, I have ulterior motives other than Foolanthropy, but if we all benefit, so be it.

First, my previous Peter Schiff video blog had a glitch, so if you missed it, it's there, you just have to scroll down to the one posted here in the comment section:  link.

Second, I'm considering a new cell phone and the lead contenders are the iPhone and the Blackberry Bold, although an outside chance at the Storm 2.  I think I'm leaning toward the Blackberry Bold mainly because it has MobiTV capabilties that the iPhone currently doesn't.

So, what's everyone's opinion on the best cell phones out there, and why?  You needed limit yourself to those 3 phones, either.

Oops, that's supposed to say you NEEDN'T limit yourself.

Thanks.  I'll look into this one a little bit, but I'm not sure it's available in Canada.

Wow.  This one kind of went no where, much to my surprise.  I thought a cell phone conversation would've generated a furvor like the debate of Commodore vs. Atari or Beta vs. VHS 20 years ago.  Looks like I'm kind of dating myself there.

Either way, between the blog and my 3 self-comments, I've helped to contribute $0.40 to a good cause.

I hate to tell ya, but the Foolanthropy drive finished on the 8th.

But hey, thanks for the video.

As for some of that mobile tech I'm technologically challenged. I'm happy to make a phone call on my Motorolla. I can count on one hand the number of times I've texted.

It ended on the 8th?  LOL!  Crap.  Oh well.  Glad you liked the video.

As for the texting, I'm with you, I hate it.
