The following is a post about my new mobile phone. Please read and then in the ‘COMMENTS’ section guess how much you think it cost! You can guess in any currency, I’ll work it out…

下面贴的就是我的新手机。请你看一下然后在‘评论’里猜一下要多少钱!你可以用各种货币来,我会算的。。。

So…I didn’t plan this…it just happened. I have a new phone! Actually it’s not a phone…it’s a whole new lifesyle…

我没有计划过。。。就是这样发生了。我有了一个新的手机。说是手机,事实上更象一种全新的生活方式。。。

new phone shanghai fake market!

Ok some backstory…we’ve been browsing Shanghai’s notorious ‘fake market’ (opposite 555 Nan Jing Xi Lu) for a couple of weeks now. I say notorious because the majority of the products they sell are…fake. That said, I suppose if you have a ‘fake market’ and sell ‘fake’ goods, then in effect you’re selling genuine goods…anyway…

说点背景故事先…我们已经逛了上海臭名昭著的’假货市场’(南京西路555号对面)好几周了.之所以说臭名昭著是因为那里卖的大部分东西都是…假的.如此说来,我以为一个’假货市场’卖的应该都是’假’货,可事实上,那里卖的都是些很棒的东西…不多说了…

Here’s what’s in the box. Phone, battery, spare battery, headphones/handsfree, usb cable, power adapter. So far, so normal. It is ‘dual sim’, so if you call either of my Chinese phone-numbers, it’ll ring. Nobody does ring them, however, but it’s nice to know that if they did, it would.

这是在盒子里的东西.电话,电池,备用电池,耳机,usb数据线,充电器。到这里还是比较正常的。它是‘双卡’的,就是说你打我两个里任意一个中国号码,它都会响。虽然没人打,但是知道如果有人这么做,它还会响,也是件好事。

Here’s how big it is. The PSP is an ‘original’ PSP (I think – if it makes a difference). As you can see, it is mostly screen (touchscreen – the stylus plugs in to the side), with a small ‘joypad’ style button next to the numbers.

你看它有多大。这是一个‘正常的’PSP(我认为-可能有不同的)。正如你看到的,大部分都是屏幕(触摸屏-手写笔插在旁边),还有一个小的‘手柄‘一个的键在数字键旁边。

It’s not too thick really, around 10mm.

它真的不是很厚,大概10毫米。

Here’s the back. Some ‘interesting’ writing on it…oh…what’s that you say? YEAH MOFO! It says TV!

这是背面。有一些‘有趣‘的字在上面。。。噢。。。你说什么?对!那是电视!

It plays TV programmes! Like…5 channels! Minimum! Depending on where you are, you can get different ones. As you can see from the video, it’s also got a little stand which you can use when you wanna watch it but not hold it in your hand…why anyone would need their hands free when watching TV is beyond me…

它可以播放电视节目!差不多。。。5个频道!至少!你在不一样的地方,可以收到不同的节目。从视频可以看出,它可以站立,你想看的时候就不用握在手里。。。我真不知道为什么有人看电视的时候要空出手。。。

You can also record from the TV! Although I’m not sure what you’d want to record…but still…good to know right? RIGHT?! It plays movies, mp3s, photos etc…and when you turn the screen around, it rotates the aspect of the picture (like those new iPod nanos).

你可以录下电视节目!虽然我不确定你是不是想录。。。但是。。知道也没有坏处,对吗?它还可以播放电影,mp3等,图片等等。。。而且当你转屏幕的时候,图片也会跟着旋转角度(就像那些新的ipod nano一样)。

It has character input (ok my hand was shaky) as well as the normal T9 dictionaries for loads of different languages (including Turkish! Holla!). You can also change the speed that the input ‘accepts’ each stroke, so no more ‘halfway-through-a-character-then-it-guesses-the-wrong-one’ problems. I know everyone has those.

它还有汉字输入法(我的手在抖)和普通的T9词典包括很多不同语言(还有土耳其语!)。你还可以改变它接受每个笔画的速度,就不会出现你输到一半出来一个错误的字的问题了。我知道大家都有这个。

It also has an extremely (uncomfortably) loud MP3/radio player (which I keep accidently setting off on the bus). Ah well…they hate me coz they ain’t me…

它还有一个非常(不舒服的)响的mp3/收音机播放器(我在公车上需要故意把这个设置为关闭)

Now here’s the game…how much was this sexy piece of kit? Put your guess in the COMMENTS!

And no cheating…if you know the answer, don’t spoil it for everyone else!!!

好了,游戏开始。。。猜一下这块性感的小东西多少钱?把你的答案写在评论里!

不能作弊。。。如果你知道答案,不许告诉其他人!
