I got a new phone this week. It's sexy. For those of you who aren't clued up it's a black Xperia X1.

Here's some more pics for me to fap to...



So, in a feeble attempt to turn this into a poll. Mobile Phones.

Recently got 2 Nokia N70's (bit of an upgrade from a Nokia 7250i)

However, I only got 2 N70's and that was about it for the price of a home visit for tech support.

Please note the lack of other important things in that last sentence like 'charger' or suchlike.

I managed to barter with Bubble one of my N70's for a charger, data cable, pomegranate tea sachet, 2 tubes of super glue, an Australian koala momento, spare key to a diary, fsckload of black crete paper and a note calling me a 'n00b'.

She has quite nice handwriting actually does Bubble, nothing like mine. Mine's really lousy, and I have trouble sometimes reading what I have just written.

Oh talking actually about how crap the ipants is, it seems it's not just people with their head screwed on who think you're a bit 'special' if you have an ipants the Japanese think you're a bit lame if you're seen with one.

Trouble is, you could take a load of used cat litter put it in a box and write ibox on it or something, and someone would buy it because, well Apple is all about the brand and people buy into that sort of thing because they are stupid.

/boring mode

I have a bog-standard phone which I can use to text, make calls, has an alarm clock and can take hundreds of pictures of Clio. Nothing fancy, it does what I require. And i like it!

/boring mode off

Mine's an LG enV. Not all that fancy but does what I want. As far as photos go I carry a camera duh, every where I go. When they get around to making cameras that can make phone calls instead of phones that can take pix I'll get excited about the two in one unit.

Mines a Sony Ericsson k800i. I like to call it my brick. The reason because my old phone before hand was smaller...

I didn't technically buy it, and no I didn't steal it either. It was my brother's old contract phone and it is just soo much better than my other one.

Selected 'Other', for reasons both Av and Skorpz know.

I actually use a w810i atm, and although it has been a faithful servant for the last 2.5 years, it's now finally falling to bits inside, and I'm looking for a new one.
