Everyone wants to see it, touch it, hold it, try it in their back pocket and then sidle off. And yet touching it seems dangerous… if you hold it for too long, you might end up wanting it so badly that the money (from £0 to £330) just walks out of your wallet.
When it’s in your possession, the first thing you notice is that you don’t notice it in your pocket. It’s so slim that you have to keep patting your trousers to make sure it’s still there. It feels good in your hand and wraps nicely round your face when you’re making calls. The sound quality is excellent, too.
After a couple of days you realise it’s a trophy girlfriend: beautiful, breathtakingly slim, great to be seen with, high-maintenance (all those shiny bits to polish) and slightly stupid. It’s great if you just want to talk to people, but the convoluted menus and unfriendly manual make it difficult to access more advanced features, such as the camera, MP3 playback and WAP browsing. More on all those when we’ve read the manual… again.
Nevertheless, it’s gorgeous... -ML
