One of the neat things about living in Japan are the cellphones. Cellphone tech here puts the US and Europe to shame.
My phone, the Casio A5403CA, is the source of the shakeycam pics on this site. Camera is 2 megapixel, has a flash and the camera writes out to cute little mini-SD cards.
The phone also has really sexy GPS mapping software built-in. You can fire it up, tell the cell phone it’s OK to turn GPS on, and immediately get a map of where you are, complete with buildings, train station locations and other goodies. For a few bucks a month, you can subscribe to a service that will overlay door-to-door directions on the map as well.
The one downside, for me at least, is that the phone cannot be switched into English mode — the entire user interface is in Japanese. Oh well!Posted by pmk at April 21, 2004 8:20 PM | TrackBack
