Cell phones. These days, everyone’s got to have one, and I’m no exception. I love cell phones. Honestly, I don’t have that many friends to talk to, but man, I still love them ’em anyway. They’re just SO cool nowadays. I mean, yeah it’s cool that you can talk to whoever you want whenever you’ve got the itch, but what’s more important is the fact you can play games and music, and take quality photos with them! Screw talking to all your friends. As Marvin Gaye would say, “Let’s Get It On.” With the gaming, music, and picture-taking, of course. (Please note that all of the images in this article, except for the first one, are clickable. What does that mean to you? Well, when you click ’em, they get bigger. Enjoy.)

I’m reviewing today what I could easily consider the coolest cell phone I’ve ever used. There are many reasons why this cell phone is cool, and I’ll tell you all of them. First, though, I’m going to tell you how I got this phone and why. Don’t care? Feel free to scroll to the end of this paragraph. It all started when I moved. I moved from an area that had a cellular service that was only for that particular area. There was absolutely nothing I could do to keep my service, and I can’t live without a cell phone, so I decided to get Cingular. Not for any particular reason, mind you, only because it’s the cheapest option for me. They do seem to have somewhat decent service, too, but honestly, it’s not quite as good as my old only-in-one-area service. I signed up for a 2 year contract, and with that, I had to pick out a new phone that would work with their SIM (or USIM) card. When you sign a 2 year commitment, you get a deal on a phone, and the first one I picked out was the LG CU500. I ended up not liking the thing very much because it didn’t play Java games too well, so I traded it in for the Sony Ericsson W810i. And boy, am I happy I did.
