Technology free – my misery

Today’s post is about my horrible horrible week. I’m being dramatic ofcourse, because it wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be but still.

My baby read phone isn’t working at the moment which sucks more than words can convey. The screen gave out which means I have to replace it, and my questionable shopping habits mean that I have to wait until end month. Sad but true, I have no technology in my life for two whole weeks .. which isn’t quite as bad as I thought it would be.

It made me take hard look at what I actually am sad about not having – Whatsapp, obviously but Instagram most of all and Email on the go. Beyond that … nothing much really. I miss my default systems and I can’t wait to have them back, and it does get super frustrating when I reach for my phone and it’s not there *sob sob* but yeah, it’s not so bad.

But that’s where this new baby comes in. Queue angels singing lol. It’s an Alcatel Tablet that I’m obsessed with.

I’m really excited because I plan to get it at the end of the month. It’s big and beautiful and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. For anyone who cares, these are the specifications.

It has a far bigger screen than my Note, so it’ll be a great stand in temporarily but my heart is still with my phone, even two years later. Can’t wait to get it fixed, but for now I’ll comfort myself with this shiny new toy :)

More pictures sourced from around the web. I’m hoping the version in stores has the same specifications because I’m getting it dirt cheap ($131) so I’m a little skeptical, but I won’t think too hard coz I really need one. Lol. I’m choosing this over a Samsung/ Lenovo/ other big brand because their price points are just too high to justify. There’s nothing overly important that can be done on a tab, so the idea of dropping $300+ on one just to watch movies on them isn’t worth it to me. I just want a big screen with a fair amount of power at a really great price, and the Alcatel Hero is excatly that.
