Come on now Steve. Lets not fall into the trap of telling porkies ourselves. I can't for one minute believe that you were really "Staggered" by the pigs ear the BBC made of it! Seems par for the...

Not a chance

I know a guy that climbed Everest last April and there is no chance of getting a mobile to work up there. The batteries just can't cope. Still good bit of publicity for them :)

Why one or the other

I don't see why it needs to be a case or Touch or Not? As you state, there are advantages to both so have both. I've owned most of the SE PXXX range of UIQ devices with both touch screens and...

This is very true. In my case, my choice of devices is severely limited by the fact that I have to run MemoryMap. Several Symbian devices have tickled my fancy of late, particularly since they...

More to it

First off, who is responsible for the testing? There are lots of different versions of the same phone with different firmwares. For example, whilst Windows Mobile devices are notoriously flakey at...

Great series

This has been a great series of articles Steve. I particularly enjoyed the one on the scratched lenses. It just goes to back-up my own personal experience. I have a "generic" windows mobile with...

A keypad may be better for one-handed use whilst "on the go" but then, people who use mobile phones whilst walking along the street should be shot. Twice.

I had a contract for years but recently switched for two reasons. I don't use many talk minutes (my device is mainly used as a PDA) and data charges on PAYG have now become reasonable. For 5 a...

Did anyone else see that top-right picture of this phone with the keypad slid out and think "Hmm, Nokia 7650"? Or is it just me and my obsession that the 7650 is still the best S60 phone?

Not if the Raphael/Diamond Pro (or whatever) keeps being delayed it won't! Still some serious issues with that keyboard from what I hear. And, in any case, have you SEEN the size of that thing? ...

Seems like a pretty fair comparison to me. I'd only make two points. One, as you mention, the N95 8GB has been out a while and had several firmware updates since it's release. The other two are...

This looks like the most impressive s60 phone I've ever seen. In fact, up that screen to 2.4" and it looks damn near perfect.

I don't think WiFi would add anything to the phone for the target...

The iPhone, currently, does very little but does it all wonderfully. S60 does a lot but...

Heh? It was a straight fight between a LG Viewty and the N82. There were no other phones in this "Huge round-up". Sorry, not criticising you or the phone (looked good), just don't want people who...
