We've covered the TyTN before (pretty extensively), so this is more of a reminder that there is an option besides the Sprint PPC-6700/Verizon XV6700/Cingular 8125/T-Mobile MDA if you want a smartphone with a keyboard.

The sucessor to the HTC Wizard, which is the design all the above phones are based on, the Hermes has a 2.8-inch screen, scroll wheel, UMTS, Bluetooth 2.0, video calling, 2-megapixel camera, and 400MHz processor. And since it's quad-band GSM, you can only import it to use on Cingular or T-Mobile. All these improved features do come with a price, as it's around $800 to $900 depending on where you look online.

DISCUSSION

When buying a digital camera, there is such a thing as too much detail. This guy is taking pictures of his hot girlfriend with their new digital camera when they catch their parents having sex. If this were my parent, I would be dealing with a trauma for the rest of my life. Note to self: Don't buy a camera with too much zoom.
