You know that you're thinking too much about cell phones when...

...you check out every person with a cell phone to see what model they have,
...you overhear two strangers taking about smartphones and you interject your opinion,
...you ask your wife or SO to rewind the DVR so you can watch the commercial for the latest handset again,
...your girlfriend gets jealous because you subscribed to tweets from the LG Girl,
...you have a smile on your face all day because your carrier is getting the Samsung Galaxy S II,
...you know who Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis are,
...whenever you see someone sporting a Motorola Razr, you pull them aside for a 30 minute lecture on updating to a new phone,
...you walk into Best Buy just to play with all of the dummy models,
...you walk into a Verizon, Sprint, AT&T or T-Mobile store and know more about upcoming models than the reps do,
...you walk into a Verizon, Sprint, AT&T or T-Mobile store and know more about current models than the reps do,
...your wife asks you to bring home some blackberries and you ask her which model she wants,
...you mark a big "X" on your calendar to remind you when your two year contract with a carrier expires,
...NFC no longer stands for the National Football Conference,
...you can rattle off specs on lesser known handsets, but can't remember your kids names,
...you would rather shop at the Android Market than at the Supermarket.

So, are you thinking too much about cell phones?

Absolutely.. I'm guilty of at least half of these.. Especially the first one.. Looking at one's phone can tell me a lot about what kind of person he is. :D

I do all but about 4 of these. My most common ones that I do are: knowing more about upcoming devices, knowing more about current devices, and (the biggest of all) looking to see what kind of phone others have.
