hiptop2 experiences

I decided to buy a hiptop2 after my original grayscale hiptop’s radio died, and the battery started to go on my roommate’s hiptop I was borrowing. They’re available for $25 after rebate from Amazon, assuming you’re adding a line or opening a new account, as I was.

So far, my impressions of the design changes since the earlier models have been mostly negative, though of course the much-improved build quality and new features are great. The biggest problem is getting used to the new keyboard; unlike everyone else I’ve talked to, who typed with their thumbs at an angle, I tended to type with my thumbs almost flat. Thinking about this, it’s probably because I’m used to playing the cello. I’ll provide more thorough feedback in a week or so…
