I used to have a nice little slim-line Sony Ericsson s500i. It was a slider which had pretty green buttons and had pretty flashing lights. Not many features but I thought it looked pretty cool (if a little bit gay with the flower wall paper) . But it was on prepaid with Virgin (who have the worst prepaid deals on the planet) and the buttons were breaking and it was slowly dieing.
So I bit the bullet and went and got a new phone. On a plan even, so I don't have to worry about running out of credit after sending a million texts to the man every night. It was either gonna be an iPhone or a Nokia. I'm not that much of a pretentious wanker so I chose the Nokia N95 8gb.
While I love the features on it (great 5 mega pixel camera, great music player, and still the same easy to use Nokia menus and messaging) its the size of a fucking brick. When I stick it in my pants pocket it feels like I've got a big old clunky mobile from the early 90's in there.
Since I've put on some weight and my pants are getting a bit tight, I'm sure it makes me look like I've got a weird shaped erection when I walk down the mall. So I hold on to it instead - which looks like I'm holding a gay little coin purse.
Weird-shaped erection, or gay coin purse? I'm gonna look like a freak either way.
