Well I got it. After lots of deliberation I upgraded my choice to K790 from K750. The big difference is price and features to say in simple words. I heard in recent time James Bond used this same phone in his last movie. Not sure what all other accessories Mr.Q added for him on the film.

I wanted to buy a camera phone as that will be handy to capture events. I remember spending $250 in Fry’s for Handspring Camera module in 2002. Oh! That looks like dinosaurs in comparison now.

Here are some pictures from the camera. The first one is of GPO(General Post Office) Mumbai; I was amazed when I went there first time. It is a true heritage from British time in Indian history. Unfortunately, it could have been better maintained like a heritage site. The design of “centenary hall” is so European with big round center desk.

The next picture is of the newspaper stand near my office. Well, a contrast from Pamela’s picture Paris news-paper stand. ;)

Back to my phone I just want to make a note to future/current owner to use MyPhoneExplorer a freeware to sync. You can sync with Thunderbird for your address book - not being stuck with M$. Still waiting from Hutch customer support for a simple MMS settings to be downloaded on my phone so that I can access internet and other cool features; according to their SLA it might takeup to 72 hours and I am still waiting :(

Today sun and clouds chase each other across the skies along the shores of Berlin as it glides past. We decided to visit Potsdam city situated on southwest of Berlin known for Sanssouci (without worries) palace; reached there by train. As we were short of time having our return ticket to Paris same evening we opted for sight-seeing guided tour bus available right outside the train station. So along with other tourists we visited new palace, old town hall, Fortunaportal and Nikolaikirche at Alter Markt, Schloss Cecilienhof, Potsdam’s Brandenburg gate, Dutch colony, Russian colony Alexandrowka providing flair of a city steeped in European tradition.

Freshened up to kick start our day and decided to go through past of Germany. Took metro and got off at Potsdamer platz. Had coffee at Starbucks just outside the metro exit as it was too cold. From here we walked to Checkpoint Charlie - a crossing point between East and West Germany during the Cold War and Berlin Wall Memorial. The scenes blur as present dissolves into the past. Images flash through our mind of 1989 when news flashed with headlines of demolition of Berlin wall.

Today while leafing through the pages of our album found yet another trip waiting to be jotted down before it gets erased from our memory. A trip to Berlin where present and past are in sync once again. We went there for 3days- 2 nights stay by train on Easter weekend when sky was gloomy and mercury dropped to almost freezing point but didn’t deter our enthu to explore city as much possible.
