The Ultimate Showdown: My Sony Ericsson W660i vs the HTC HD Mini

Proving that the technology gods have a wicked sense of humor, I, the acclaimed quasi technophobe has been chosen to test a smartphone. Which one, you ask? As a firm believer in the 1 picture = 1000 words equation, let me present for your collective nerdgasm, the HTC HD Mini:



Now, I've had HTC's Mini for seven days, make that eight (editing deities, you'll be the death of me). And my initial impressions are documented here for those who have IQ points to shave or brain cells to damage. At this point, I think it's only fair to introduce the Mini's fiercest competition (at least in my heart, where everything counts), the Sony Ericsson W660i:

And now for the tale of the tape, here be the pertinent statistics:


No concluding statements yet, as there are still aspects of this showdown I haven't fully investigated. All I can say is, stay tuned for part deux of this battle.

stupid review! how can it be an ultimate showdown when the 2 phones are not even in the same league! and your comments weren't of much help either, you can't even call this a review.

real classy *applause* does reading between the lines mean anything to you? obviously they're not in the same league. why would Conan O'Brien compare his '92 Ford Taurus with the 2010 Taurus? learn some respect

Er, Paul. I think you missed this part:

"Proving that the technology gods have a wicked sense of humor, I, the acclaimed quasi technophobe has been chosen to test a smartphone."

and this one...

"At this point, I think it's only fair to introduce the Mini's fiercest competition (at least in my heart, where everything counts), the Sony Ericsson W660i:"

That's like a third of the post, I believe.


Maybe I'm being too nice and subtle, and should quote Brandon?

"it's a blog... which school of douchebaggery did you come from?"

But I think blogger Mel should thank you. Now, fellow bloggers are rushing to this site to examine and comment on the fine points of stupidity, as well as those of the HTC HD Mini.

Also, that you bothered to comment, even to a "stupid" blog testifies that the post was interesting enough to affect you. Uy!
