DESIRE from GCI: It’s here. It’s pretty. It’s mine.

In Alaska Travelgram, Consumer, Shopping by scott

Ah, the DESIRE. I went to GCI to pick one up–and immediately typed out a missive on the big touch-screen keyboard. Cool. I haven’t figured out the music features, but did manage to change my ringtone BY MYSELF (no help from in-home teens!).

Android fans will love the app store. I got Google Voice, Foursquare, Facebook, Twitter, a QR reader, etc. It meshes with my gmail account, with Google Maps, Google calendar…well, it’s a Google phone. Go figure. Here are some of the specs:

  • 1 Ghz Snapdragon Processor
  • Access to One Jillion Android Apps
  • Huge Touchscreen
  • Alaska’s Largest 3G Network
  • Full Web Browser
  • Email (IMAP, POP3 and Microsoft Exchange)
  • 5 Megapixel Camera and Video Camera (YEP–I shot video of moose in the yard!!)
  • MP3 music player
  • Bluetooth Capable

Get one. Get it from GCI. I did.
