I used to own a Nokia 3650. Some of you may know what happened to it... http://www.bikesagainstbush.com/blog/hardball.html It was fun to capture video with my phone and email it or post it on a TextAmerica blog -- quality was shit, but fun to play with. But, I never really used it to watch other video content -- other than self-created videos. Maybe this was because there wasn't much available that I'd want on my phone. Or, maybe because I didn't want to wait to download stuff over GPRS (slow and annoying). I think I would be way more likely to subscribe to a blog rather than traditional media content. Watching movie trailers isn't appealing to me... Maybe I'm not quite the standard consumer, but I'm probably not alone on this list. --Josh On Thu, 28 Oct 2004 11:13:50 -0700, M.
