Dear Old Dad is walking Baby Chloe around my apartment now. She refused to sleep all day yesterday, and cried and cried and cried last night into the early hours of the morning for no reason at all -- she was fed, burped, changed, swaddled and cuddled. God knows what was up. Poor Marc the Metrosexual had a long day at work, and then no rest. Even though I tried to keep Chloe in the nursery and shut the door of our bedroom to let him sleep, it was no use.
Anyway, now that Grandpa's here, she's fine. He's like the Baby Whisperer.
Which is why I want to get him a phone as soon as possible -- he deserves better than what he has. His old black and white Nokia is a shame. Now its on/off button has broken, so it's perpetually on.
Dad has decided, thanks to all your comments, that the iPhone may not be right for him. He's considering the Samsung, as many of you suggested, or maybe the Nokia N8.
The plus of the Nokia is that it has a 12 megapixel camera vs. the Samsung's 5 megapixel camera. Dad really wants to get rid of his old digital camera, so this is an important point. He wants a camera that takes photos of printable quality. He doesn't care much about apps or anything fancy.
My concern with the Nokia is that it uses the Symbian operating system. Is it user friendly? Easily compatible?Dad uses Windows 7 on a PC laptop. He doesn't use a photo manipulating program -- he just wants to upload the jpegs so he can print them or email them to friends.
